We’ve teamed up with TANZ eCampus to bring Northlanders fees-free study from home. We’ve all been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic and with difficult times ahead for many people, this is the time to upskill or learn new skills – from the comfort of your own home at your own pace.
Enrol for any eCampus programme offered by NorthTec before 18 May 2020 and study Fees Free.
No data or device at home? No problem. Get in touch today to see how we can help.
TANZ eCampus is a fully online platform and is staffed by trained and experienced tutors who support learners throughout their studies. It’s a great way to study if you are unable to leave home, and with no fees it will be a really productive way for people to use their time while the country is in this unprecedented situation.
Would you support the introduction of MMP to local body elections?
A former Labour minister has called on the government to implement MMP as the voting system for local body elections in a bid to 'fix' local government.
Peter Neilson, an economist, is a former Labour MP for Miramar, a Minister of Revenue, Works and Associate Minister of Finance. Neilson explains how MMP could have a positive impact on civic participation after data from Internal Affairs showed a decline in voter turnout.
Around four out of 10 New Zealanders on the electoral role turned out to vote in the last set of local elections. In comparison, around seven or eight out 10 voted in the general election last year.

Ross’ retirement saw the beginning of his musical journey where his passion quickly evolved from making music, to crafting guitars. It all started when Ross and some mates joined a music group where the camaraderie and togetherness were just as important as the music.
Living in a Ryman village, Ross can continue living life to the full in his retirement because they are places where you don’t retire from life, you find a new way to live .
