Sector Enablement and Support (SE and S) is the key interface between the Ministry and education providers. It is our role to ensure that sector leaders and the communities in which they operate have access to the expertise, programmes and resources that will allow our children and young people to reach their full potential.

The education advisor – Māori engagement works to support the individual student pathway for Māori children and young people, particularly those who are disengaged from education. They ensure Māori children and young people, parents, whānau and iwi are considered to deliver education success.

We are looking for a person who can:

  • Relate to and understand the aspirations and needs of Māori children and young people, parents and whānau, iwi, businesses and employers in the region
  • Report, analyse and evaluate research and data from a wide range of sources to identify and respond to priorities for Māori children and young people
  • Work in partnership with parents, families, whānau, businesses and employers to understand their needs and provide a foundation for education success
  • Identify and support other agencies and providers to ensure Māori children and young people are able to engage and participate in education.
