Help shape the future of education

He mea tārai e mātou te mātauranga kia rangatira ai, kia mana taurite ai ōna huanga.

We work to shape an education system that delivers equitable and excellent outcomes.

At Te Tāhuhu o te Mātauranga – Ministry of Education, we work to provide services and support nationally, regionally and locally to the education sector, and in some cases, directly to ākonga (learners) and whānau (families).

We help shape the policies, settings and performance of the education system for early learning, schooling and tertiary. We do this by building relationships and understanding the needs of those who receive our services.

We are making significant changes to how we deliver our mahi (work) by doing the following:

  • Taking practical action to give effect to Te Tiriti o Waitangi – The Treaty of Waitangi
  • Giving priority to regional and local voice
  • Delivering greater responsiveness, accessibility and integrated services and support
  • Improving feedback loops and information flows

Our organisation is made up of talented and committed people across Aotearoa – New Zealand from a wide range of backgrounds and cultures. While we work in different groups and on different things, we all strive every day to make the biggest difference we can for every child, young person and adult student in our education system.

About our group and team

Learning Support is a critical part of Te Mahau in Te Tāhuhu o te Mātauranga – Ministry of Education.

We are charged with leading the education sector in ensuring that children and young people with additional learning needs are supported to achieve their full potential through education.

Our Learning Support practitioners work closely with families, whānau, caregivers, schools and early childhood educators in English and Māori medium settings and other agencies to help maximise learning outcomes and promote social inclusion.
