North Tec


We have been delivering education for the people of Te Tai Tokerau for over 40 years and remain as committed to serving our communities today as we did then.

We began in 1978 as the Northland Community College with a staff of 10 tutors and have now grown to become Te Tai Tokerau's largest provider of tertiary and vocational education. In 1987 Northland Community College changed its name to Northland Polytechnic [Tai Tokerau Wānanga] and to NorthTec [Tai Tokerau Wānanga] in June 2006.

From 1 October 2022, NorthTec Tai Tokerau Wānanga became Te Pūkenga. Te Pūkenga brings the Institutes of Technology and Polytechnics (ITPs) and the arranging training activities of certain Industry Training Organisations (ITOs) together to create a national network.
