Comments about Student Experience and Outcomes

  • The value of outcomes goes beyond completion of the qualification and the gaining of employment. The self- respect gained along with the confidence and knowledge applied in the workplace is valued by students, employers and the community.
  • Students are very well supported, and their academic and pastoral care needs are being met. 
  • Students gain relevant, work-ready and soft skills through work placements relevant to their working contexts. This can result in promotion and the opportunity to earn beyond the minimum wage (also see key evaluation question 2). 
  • Tertiary Education Commission-funded course completion rates are 92.9 per cent overall – Māori and Pasifika rates are 93.4 and 97.7 per cent respectively.
