Disestablishment of Te Pukenga leaves job certainty in question

Anger at the Government's decision to disestablish tertiary education programme Te Pukenga. 

Tertiary Education and Skills Minister Penny Simmonds announced the move yesterday, following a Letter of Expectation saying they're not prioritising it. 

But the Tertiary Education Union is worried Simmonds has no clear plan on what happens next, and no vision for the sector.  

National Secretary Sandra Grey says their members won't have any job certainty until well into the new year. 

She says they go into Christmas not knowing if they'll have a job, lose it, or have to apply for something entirely new.
