The Western Institute of Technology at Taranaki (WITT), or Te Kura Matatini o Taranaki, is a government-funded tertiary institute providing education to people within the region and worldwide. As the local hub of learning in this region, WITT is here to serve Taranaki. Our role is to cater to learners' needs, play our part in addressing national skills shortages, keep talented people in the region, and provide our key industries and local businesses the skilled workforce that they need.
From degrees and diplomas to apprenticeships and short courses, WITT delivers industry-relevant training to people at all stages of the learning journey. Through the provision of education, we respond to the needs of the industry and align with the regional development priorities outlined in the Taranaki 2050 Roadmap and Tapuae Roa.
