About the college

NorthTec is the region’s largest provider of tertiary education, with campuses and learning centres in Whangarei city and Kerikeri in the Bay of Islands, and Learning Centres in Rawene on the shores of the Hokianga, Kaikohe and our northernmost site in Kaitaia.

NorthTec remains the only Northland-based Tertiary Education Institute (TEI) that provides programmes from foundation to degree level. NorthTec (Northland Polytechnic) is a government funded tertiary institution.

Originally opened as the Northland Community College in 1978, with a staff of ten tutors, the college was hailed as “a significant centre for learning and an administrative centre for courses to be run in the wider community.” In 1987 Northland Community College changed its name to Northland Polytechnic [Tai Tokerau Wananga] and to NorthTec [Tai Tokerau Wananga] in June 2006.
