Why join the ITP Community
With thousands of members, ITP is the largest and most trusted tech body in New Zealand.
ITP is New Zealand's tech professional community. ITP members care about professional practice, subscribe to a Code of Ethics, and work hard to improve themselves. ITP helps by providing over 200 networking and educational events and short courses each year, recognising professionals via Chartered IT Professional and Certified Technologist certifications and much more.
ITP does two things: develops professionals and the professional community, and works on behalf of the community as both the voice to Government and via a broad range of other initiatives.
ITP is at the forefront of reforming tech-related education in schools and at tertiary level, as well as running the hugely successful TechHub programme introducing thousands of kids to a future career in tech, and is involved in various other initiatives such as the Cloud Computing Code of Practice.
ITP serves and connects four important communities:
ITP helps IT Professionals get ahead by recognising professional practice, organising hundreds of events and short courses every year, facilitating mentoring, and providing a voice to Government and others.
ITP Corporate Partners are recognised for supporting ITP's activities while also gaining direct professional development benefits for their staff.
With a heavily discounted membership cost, ITP helps students get ahead and works to bridge the jump from study to work. ITP has over 1000 student members across New Zealand and helps connect students with their local industry.
Educators and Researchers
As well as providing the same direct benefits to academics as with industry members, ITP recently formed the ITP Education and Research Group to support advocacy and other initiatives to advance tech education.
