Government shake up of polytechs

From The Panel, 4:45 pm on 13 February 2019

The Government proposed today merging all 16 polytechnics into a single national institution.

Education Minister Chris Hipkins says this will radically reform the organisations, in the face of of falling enrolments and multi-million dollar deficits.

We speak to Josh Williams, chief executive of the Industry Training Federation about the proposal.
