Steven Joyce claims tertiary success

From just released tertiary league tables (in Otago institutions enjoy rankings success):

Tertiary Education Minister Steven Joyce said the overall results showed the Government’s continued focus on performance in the tertiary sector was working well.


  • course completion had risen from 77% in 2009 to 82% in 2011
  • qualification completions had increased from 62% in 2009 to 71% in 2011

“This is exactly the type of improvement we have been working towards. It shows the tertiary sector is responding to our signals to focus on performance and to deliver better value for taxpayers’ money,” he said.
