The Tertiary Education Commission has opened Registrations of Interest to deliver a Centre of Vocational Excellence, focused on the Construction sector.

In 2018 the Minister of Education, Chris Hipkins, announced a review of the Vocational Education and Training (VET) System. This was followed by a proposal for system reform in February 2019, and consultation on the proposed changes as part of the Reform of Vocational Education (RoVE) programme. One of the fundamental changes in the new VET system is the introduction of Centres of Vocational Excellence (CoVEs).
The first two pilot CoVEs will be a Primary Sector CoVE and a Construction CoVE. It is intended that each of these CoVEs will be made up of a consortium of interested parties, funded under a funding agreement with government for a specific period (up to five years). It is intended that CoVEs are an enduring part of the vocational education system.
Registrations of Interest are open for the Construction CoVE.
The following information is available on TEC’s website at:

This can be accessed via the Construction RoI Q&As page.
