A CoVE is a Centre of Vocational Excellence. CoVE’s are designed to drive innovation and excellence in teaching and learning, while also improving links to industry and communities. They will be established around industries of particular importance to New Zealand
It is intended that ConCOVE will bring together the Construction and Infrastructure workforce, New Zealand Institute of Skills and Technology, other providers, Workforce Development Councils (WDC), and research to enable all vocational education organisations to access the best of what is available nationally.
CoVE’s will involve relevant industry experts (beyond WDC’s) to ensure the latest industry knowledge and best practice is brought into the CoVE.
As of September 2020, two CoVE’s have been established. The Construction and Infrastructure CoVE and The Primary Sector CoVE.
