Southern Institute of Technology (SIT) to take over Telford campus of Taratahi

Education Minister Chris Hipkins has agreed to a proposal from the Southern Institute of Technology (SIT) to take over the Telford campus of the Taratahi Agricultural Centre.

The Government will invest $1.8 million in SIT to deliver primary industries training programmes both at Telford and through distance learning. SIT is aiming to teach around 200 primary industry students in 2019 at the Telford campus and across New Zealand.

Students intending to study at Telford should get in touch with Lisa Snell, Telford Operations Manager, from Monday 11 February. 

All information for Taratahi students, including study options, and information on student allowance and other support, is on the TEC website.
