The Central Institute of Technology (CIT – which later became part of the Wellington Institute of Technology, or WelTec) in Upper Hutt, near Wellington, was a national institution that specialised in health education. In 1971 responsibility for occupational-therapy training was shifted from hospitals to technical institutes and was offered only at CIT. Training was transferred to the Auckland Institute of Technology (now the Auckland University of Technology) in 1989. These young women are attending a stage-one lecture in occupational therapy at CIT in 1971.
