The Tensions Associated with Regional Programme Development within a Neo-Liberal Environment for Tertiary Providers in Aotearoa New Zealand
Preston, Debbie; Carlyon, Tracey
New Zealand Journal of Educational Studies, v54 n2 p315-325 Nov 2019
In Aotearoa New Zealand, changes to the political landscape have made it increasingly difficult for Institutes of Technology and Polytechnics (ITP) to successfully deliver programmes in regions away from urban centres. Within this context, research was undertaken to identify some of the tensions associated with regional strategy development. Findings highlighted that each community and their needs are different; positive partnerships are required; there are resourcing challenges, yet ITP staff demonstrate a strong sense of social and moral responsibility to their learners and communities.
