Expressions of interest to join Review of Achievement Standards Expert Group


Posted: 29 July 2019
Notice reference #: 1H9wJR

The Review of Achievement Standards will commence in 2020 as part of the NCEA Review Change Package.

We’re testing the process from October to December 2019 with English, visual arts, religious studies and Level 1 science. This will help us refine our approach before the full-scale review in 2020.

Each subject will have an expert group, who will identify the significant learning in their subject and work with a wider team to develop and write new assessment matrices, achievement standards, and resources.

We are seeking expressions of interest to be on each subject expert group for these early-start subjects.

Each group will have between 8–10 representatives.

Applicants should:

  • Have expertise or experience in the relevant subject (noted above)
  • Have an interest and expertise in learning and assessment within that subject
  • Be prepared to commit to approximately 5–6 days in 2019, 10 days in 2020, and around 6–8 days over 2021, 2022 and 2023.

We’re looking for a range of voices:

  • Experienced practising teachers and experts from a range of educational settings and backgrounds, including community, industry and tertiary education
  • People with a strong, authentic understanding of how to integrate te ao and tikanga Māori, and Pacific peoples’ knowledge and cultures into teaching and learning design.

Flights, accommodation and teacher release time paid to your school (if applicable) will be covered. Where work occurs over weekends or holidays, the equivalent teacher release rate will be paid to the teacher.

Decisions on the membership of each group will take into account the merits of individual candidates (including relevant expertise and experience) and the overall diversity, balance and composition of each group.

To apply, submit your CV and brief cover letter to by 23 August.

Applications for subject expert groups for other subjects will begin late 2019 or early 2020.
