The issue 

The Code of Good Practice for New Zealand Apprenticeships indicates that there are three parties to NZ Apprenticeship, one being the tertiary education provider.

The Code of Practice states “the responsibilities of the tertiary education provider are to facilitate the training and support both the apprentice and the employer throughout the apprenticeship”.

This project seeks to understand how different tertiary providers facilitate the training and support for the apprentice and employer during a training programme to support building capacity for greater success for ākonga participating in vocational education in Aotearoa New Zealand
