Street and postal addresses for Tertiary Education Commission offices.

While many New Zealanders find the information they need by using the tools and resources on our website, you can also talk to our career advisers over the phone or via the web.

We also have a nationwide network of career consultants, who deliver workshops to individuals and groups. Consultants also work alongside local community groups and schools to give specialised career guidance.

Call us on 0800 222 733 for assistance, or chat with us online. You can also visit our events calendar to see what’s happening in your region.
