Membership benefits


ITENZ champions members’ interests to Government and other important partners, and lobbies on your behalf.

Members can have their concerns and questions raised at Peak Bodies meetings with government agencies (TEC, NZQA, MoE, MSD, ENZ, INZ, WDCs), can participate in joint submissions, and can enagage directly with officials at ITENZ-organised events. ITENZ represents you on many government working parties and advisory groups.


We simplify the complex information that comes from Government and elsewhere and keep you up to date with what is happening in the sector.

You will receive our monthly newsletter as well as occasional email updates and reminders. Our Members’ Area of the website houses resources for your benefit.


We keep you in touch with the right people in Government, partner organisations, and fellow PTEs - you will be part of a community that understand you.

ITENZ Communities of Practice, the ITENZ International Education Forum, webinars, roadshows, the annual conference and other events provide excellent networking opportunities. Members benefit from the MoUs we have with Workforce Development Councils (WDCs) and Centres of Vocational Excellence (CoVEs)

Learners can connect with you through our filterable members list.


We help you grow - through webinars, conferences and individual educational support. Our knowledge is based on personal experience in the sector.

We run regular webinars on topics relevant to you and your staff. The annual ITENZ conference attracts CEs from key government agencies as well as education and industry partners and is a fantastic place to learn from peers and other experts. ITENZ staff are available to provide individual support.
