Reference #: 1H9gUn

The Government is planning a range of changes across a wide number of areas of education policy and practice.

The Ministry of Education is working with the Government on these changes in areas such as replacing national standards, making some changes to the existing Communities of Learning | Kāhui Ako model, reviewing all partnership/charter schools, and implementing the Education (Update) Amendment Act 2017. We are also advising on the implementation of the tertiary fees-free policy, the upcoming NCEA review, school donations, and changes to the existing policy around cohort entry. 

We’ll keep you up to date and informed about these, and other changes to education policy at: https://goo.gl/3hScPE(external link)

We will update this information regularly, and on Twitter and Facebook. You can follow us on Twitter and Facebook here:

In the meantime, and whilst the various policy changes are being worked through, our advice is that all education providers in early learning services, kōhanga reo, schools, kura, and tertiary, should continue to use, and implement, current policy settings and practices until we notify you that these policies and practices have officially changed.
