How to figure out what's next - and actually get there

As a professional body we're often asked by members for some pointers on kickstarting or progressing a career. Or how to turn a "job" into a "career" and actually get some focus into getting ahead.

This has especially been the case following research released a few weeks ago that showed far more industry investment in immigration than domestic talent development - meaning less employer-funded professional development than many other industries. And that has to change.

Quick ITP update and upcoming events

(From Monday) What an exciting week we've just had, with the 123Tech digital challenge national finals event broadcast live to schools, industry folks, students and the public across New Zealand.

We were excited to recognise the national winners during the event, from Arahoe School, Auroa School and Palmerston North Girls High School, while also celebrating regional success from across New Zealand. We were also pleased to recognise recently retired teacher Margot Phillipps for her massive contribution over many years.

And just a heads-up - we're taking ITx on the road next year, with Innovation Day and related events happening across all 8 of our home cities, plus potentially one or two other places as well. 2021 is going to be a great year!
