CHIEF EXECUTIVE' S FOREWORD

Final words from the Chair As Council Chair I would like to recognise Dr Linda Sissons for her significant contribution to WelTec and for her professional hand-over to the new Chief Executive. I congratulate the work undertaken by Chris Gosling as the Chief Executive of WelTec and Whitireia from May. During the nine months to December 2015 Chris Gosling led both institutions to successful performance, achieved a significant milestone in establishing a new management structure for WelTec and Whitireia and ensured the Students First Partnership continued to develop. Ensuring quality of provision, increasing access to vocational education and training in the Wellington region and institutional viability along with significant progress on the creative technologies and arts development were key achievements.
No reira, tena koutou, tena koutou, tena koutou katoa.
HON ROGER SOWRY Council Chair, ONZM
