Industry training organisations (ITOs) are part of New Zealand’s tertiary education sector, along with universities, polytechnics and wānanga.
ITOs work almost exclusively with people who are learning a trade or skill on-the-job. These people are either apprentices or trainees.
There are eleven ITOs in New Zealand and each of them looks after a specific set of industries.
ITOs are owned by their industry members, recognised by Government and usually receive funding from both Government and industry.
