Wayne Jackson has resigned as Acting CE of NorthTec effective from the end of August. His resignation is accepted with regret and appreciation.
Wayne stepped into the Acting CE role for an initial period of one year at a time when the sector was facing severe challenge. With the sector reforms and the post-Covid environment he believes a permanent CE is now required to work with the new Board.
The Board, and the previous Council are extremely grateful to Wayne and his family for moving to Whāngārei to undertake the role and for the major changes that have been made in his term. These include revitalised premises across the six NorthTec campuses, a major move to web based learning, Iwi delivery partnerships and a new Whāngārei based Skills learning centre+.
The Board wishes Wayne well in his future endeavours.
