 Our Partnerships


The Business and Industry Partnerships portfolio was established in 2021 to focus on collaboration between learners and the workforce. Our vision is to bring business into the heart of UCOL and provide opportunities not only for students and graduates to be in the workplace, but also for workers to be learners. We will do this by partnering with you to:

  • Build strong collaborative relationships with business and industry that are mutually beneficial to all parties.
  • Provide space for employers to make UCOL their home.
  • Build relationships in which industry and business partners see UCOL as an enabler and partner of choice.
  • Be responsive to and meet the needs of your organisation and those of our learners, industries, employers, and communities.
  • Our solutions and partnerships are complemented by high quality resources existing within UCOL and its networks, including knowledgeable staff and educators, first class facilities, and access to industry networks.
  • Create lasting and worthwhile sponsorships that create mutual benefits for our students and your business.
