Secondary-Tertiary pathways project funding now available
4/4/16

We invite interested, eligible tertiary education organisations and secondary schools to apply for funding for a new Engineering e2e initiative.

We are looking for innovative joint proposals from secondary schools and eligible TEOs. The applications need to tell us how you will work collaboratively to deliver programmes that will successfully prepare and pathway students – particularly women, Maori, and Pasifika – into tertiary engineering study.

Successful projects will improve the pathway from secondary school to tertiary engineering study, increase awareness of engineering as a career in the community, and increase enrolments in level 6–7 engineering qualifications.

More information on the project, including the Request for Funding Applications and an application form, is available on the Tertiary Education Commission's Ee2e web page.

Applications will close at 5.00pm on 27 May 2016.

Make the World
2/2/16

The two-year public awareness campaign Make the World is ready to go! The Tertiary Education Commission has contracted IPENZ to manage the campaign and OPEN Communications will develop the materials.

Aiming to raise awareness of engineering and engineering careers through a wide cross section of society, including employers and educational institutions, the campaign will also target Maori, Pasifika and women, who are under-represented in the profession.

Engineering e2e is calling on all of you in the engineering industry/education sectors to make the project successful – we need you to work together and help implement the various promotional activities. A Reference Group, with members from a range of engineering firms across the country, will provide feedback from an employer’s point of view on upcoming activity.

If you are interested in becoming a member of the Reference Group, contact us: engineeringe2e@tec.govt.nz
