MEDIA RELEASE: Whitecliffe College has unveiled major plans for the future of the tertiary organisation, including an education merger with NZ Fashion Tech and Computer Power Plus, which now all sit under the Whitecliffe brand.
An entire rebrand and campus relocation across Auckland, Manukau, Wellington and Christchurch are well underway, with head offices and Auckland campuses moving to 67 Symonds Street before the end of 2019.
All three tertiary organisations are owned by Asia Pacific Education Group (APEDU), pulling over 130 years of quality teaching experience together and making Whitecliffe College the largest fashion school in New Zealand.
Darryn Melrose, CEO for Whitecliffe College, the driving force behind the College’s rebrand, wanted the brand to reflect school’s new vision of being globally recognised for developing students as critical and creative thinkers.
“Our vision is ambitious and is not contained within the boundaries of New Zealand,” says Melrose.
“What many employers across a range of sectors are telling us is that they want the graduates they hire to be more creative. Our strength is in shaping and stimulating the creative abilities of students and we look forward to a future where we can deliver to a wider range of employers than today.”
The Whitecliffe brand has been a household name throughout New Zealand since 1983. Thirty-five years later, the school continues to produce an internationally recognised level of creative thinkers.
