The new NCEA Review Ministerial Advisory Group brings a diverse range of skills and experience relevant to the NCEA review, ranging from youth advocacy to student assessment, secondary-tertiary pathways and Māori-medium education, along with a broad understanding of secondary schooling in New Zealand.

Jeremy Baker (Chair), Beef + Lamb NZ

Barbara Cavanagh, Huntly College

Pauline Waiti, Ahu Whakamua Limited

Michelle Dickinson, ‘Nanogirl’

Jonathan Gee, New Zealand Union of Students’ Associations
