NorthTec is the Northland region's largest provider of tertiary education, with campuses and learning centres in Whangarei city and Kerikeri in the Bay of Islands, and Learning Centres in Rawene on the shores of the Hokianga, Dargaville, Kaikohe and our northernmost site in Kaitaia.
NorthTec is the only Northland-based Tertiary Education Institute (TEI) that provides programmes from foundation to degree level.
NorthTec staff and management are committed to our Charter to make tertiary education accessible to all Northlanders. We offer our students high quality and industry-focused education, with flexible learning options and a personalised classroom approach.
Our commitment to our students extends beyond the campus boundaries. We have solid partnerships with iwi, other institutions, industry organisations and advisors, to further enable us to meet NorthTec's mission of developing Northland and its people through tertiary education. We pride ourselves on the fact that when our students are ready to leave us they graduate with the knowledge and practical skill base needed “in the real world” of business and enterprise.
NorthTec supports and encourages the development of our staff and a strong research culture. Staff continue to participate in a wide range of research and other developmental activities, with particular encouragement being given to new researchers to attend workshops and presentations. Our staff and established researchers are increasingly collaborating both internally and externally to ensure the quality of what we offer our students.
