More than 4000 tauira have so far responded to our 2017 Tauira Experience Survey, but there's still time for more tauira to have their say.

Tumuratonga Keri Milne-Ihimaera is asking all kaimahi to encourage tauira to check their personal email to complete the online survey.

All tauira who complete the survey before 50pm, Wednesday 28 June go in the draw to win one of five $100 Prezzy Cards. A final reminder will go to all tauira yet to participate in the survey on Friday. 
Some noticeable trends and interesting facts from the feedback so far include:

  • nearly half of all tauira are working fulltime while they study with us
  • tauira value communication about our support services – and would like more face-to-face class visits from our tauira support people (to build trust/familiarity)
  • many tauira would like video content about our support services and careers advice
  • tauira want to network with other tauira, both online and offline 

"In addition, we’ve discovered we achieve better reach and engagement when we contact tauira on their personal details – provided we are consistent in our messages, and don’t over-communicate," Keri says.

"A simple way to improve the tauira experience is to collect more personal email addresses. This will aid future communication to support our tauira. Please bear this in mind for Semester B recruitment. Finally, early results show that you – our kaimahi – continue to be a defining, positive influence on the tauira experience. Thank you for playing your part and continuing this strong, proud tradition."
