CATE Conference 2024
University of Otago, Dunedin
Wednesday 20th-22nd November 2024

Seek the treasure you value most dearly: if you bow your head, let it be to a lofty mountain

We are delighted to announce that the CATE Conference of 2024 will be taking place in the beautiful, geographically, culturally and historically rich City of Dunedin (Edinburgh of the South). Our conference theme is “Whāia te iti kahurangi ki te tūohu koe me he maunga teitei” which  translated means “Seek the treasure you value most dearly: if you bow your head, let it be to a lofty mountain”. This whakatauki is about aiming high for what is truly valuable—and at CATE 2024 our goal is to add valuable treasures to your kete which you will use going forward in your Careers and Guidance practice.

CATE 2024 will bring together all treasure seekers across Aotearoa New Zealand so that together as career professionals, educators, industry experts, and researchers we can share our treasures, our creativity, insights, new initiatives, and best practices in the ever changing field of career education and guidance.

The conference will be held in Dunedin City, located around the thriving University of Otago campus. Events throughout the conference will be held at the University of Otago, Otago Polytechnic (Te Pukenga) and the Dunedin Museum. There will even be the opportunity to be accommodated at our brand new university hostel.

Come and join us for the conference which will be held from the 20th-22nd November 2024—stay on after the conference for a weekend celebrating all that Otago offers. Central Otago vineyards, exploring the Lawrence gold fields, Dunedin Street art, incredible architecture, the Chinese Gardens, enjoying the Otago Peninsula with its gorgeous scenery, great cafes, wildlife (check out the penguins!) other marine life and of course our albatross colony.

We look forward to seeing you in November!
