Who We Are
NZACE is a non-profit organisation that promotes cooperative education/work-integrated learning to education providers, workplaces and government in New Zealand.
Our membership consists of staff from institutions around New Zealand who facilitate student work experience in business, research institutes and industry as part of students’ educational programmes.
We initiate, support and publish research in cooperative education and provide guidelines for institutions seeking to establish cooperative education programmes. We have links with overseas cooperative education institutions for research and student exchanges.
Every year we host an annual conference for cooperative education practitioners to present research and new programmes.
The following outlines key contributions NZACE and associated members have made, and are continuing to make, in the national and international arena of cooperative work-integrated education.Read More
