Private Training Establishments & others

New Zealand has a large number of Private Training Establishments (PTEs) and they are all very different in what they offer. They have to meet academic standards and be registered with the New Zealand Qualifications Authority (NZQA) and offer courses from certificate, diploma to degree level. Some PTEs specialise in a particular industry and others offer broader programmes. Courses can involve work placements which help students develop work-related skills.
