Projects and programmes

Posted: 27 January 2020
Notice reference #: 1HA4qF

This year we will be developing new literacy and numeracy Unit Standards as part of the NCEA Review. The new standards and associated materials will be developed by Subject Expert Groups (SEGs) who will identify the significant learning within literacy and numeracy and lead the development of standards and supporting materials.

We are calling for Expressions of Interest to join a literacy SEG and numeracy SEG for English-medium.

Applicants should:

  • Have expertise or experience in either literacy or numeracy education for young people, in either school or non-school contexts
  • Have an interest and expertise in learning and assessment within literacy or numeracy
  • Be prepared to commit to approximately 10 days in 2020, including 2 training days in early April.

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 experience working with ākonga Māori and Pacific students, and who have a strong, authentic understanding of how to integrate te ao and tikanga Māori, and Pacific peoples’ knowledge and cultures into teaching, learning and assessment design
  • People with experience working with English language learners.

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, send your CV and cover letter to ncea.review@education.govt.nz by 21 February 2020 with the subject line ‘Literacy and Numeracy SEG EOI’. Please keep your CV and cover letter concise (maximum of 4 pages in total and Word documents only), noting your relevant experience.
