In February 2019 Minister Chris Hipkins announced proposed sweeping reforms to the entire vocational education system – The Reform of Vocational Education (RoVE).

Te Pūkenga was created in April 2020, bringing together 16 Institutes of Technology and Polytechnics, and 9 Industry Training Organisations into a single unified and integrated network of vocational education, supporting work-based, on-campus, and online learning across Aotearoa.

In December 2023, the new Government announced its intention to disestablish Te Pūkenga | New Zealand Institute of Skills and Technology.
