Ara is proud to have formed close working relationships with a range of individuals, companies and organisations. These relationships allow Ara to make the most of the resources and information available, strengthening the institution and the wider community.

Ara has close industry relationships with Metro, The Tertiary Accord of New Zealand (TANZ), Tai Poutini and a number of private training organisations. Ara is also proud to have several international relationships with sister institutions.

Industry relationships enable Ara to initiate projects to enhance learning and develop research and technology transfer. These relationships have created TradeFIT (Trade Future In Training), a project to enhance and expand the trade, industry and infrastructure training that already operates at Ara.
