Private Training Establishments (PTE's)

Private Training Establishments (PTE)

New Zealand has a huge number of Private Training Establishments (PTEs) and they are all very different in what they offer and teach. What links them all is that they are required to be registered with the New Zealand Qualifications Authority and their curriculum and academic standards must meet national standards.

What does this mean for you?

It gives you confidence that the course you are looking at is a valid one, that it is being taught to the same level as other institutions like polytechnics and that the opportunities for you when the course is completed are the same as if you had studied or trained at a larger, better known institution.

PTEs are very diverse in terms of their size, location, culture and their areas of educational expertise. PTEs can range from small, one or two person businesses right through to large operations with large teaching staffs and thousands of students. PTEs are operated by a wide range of companies, trusts and other entities, and are most often in vocational niches, meaning they tend to have a focus on more practical skills and education.

There are over 100 PTE's in Auckland. For a full list of PTE's in New Zealand you can look here. While a number offer multiple programmes, some are very specialised in what they offer, or cater specifically for International students. Look through these pages to find an institution for you.
