Help shape the future of education

At the Ministry of Education, we work together to shape an education system that delivers equitable and excellent outcomes.

Our organisation is made up of more than 3,000 talented and committed people around 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.

Te Poutāhū – Curriculum centre

We set the system-level learning for every child and student. Working between policy and customer facing functions, there is a significant political, stakeholder and public interest in the high performance of this group and the education curriculum and teaching workforce outcomes we seek for Aotearoa New Zealand.

The Curriculum, Pathways and Progress group has a significant programme of work to refresh The New Zealand Curriculum and transform curriculum supports, resources and services over the next five years. We want it to be easier for schools and communities to design and deliver rich learning opportunities that support the progress and success of all young people.

The group works collaboratively with a range of partners to use evidence, educational trends and diverse perspectives to design and implement curriculum frameworks, resources, tools and services that are powerful in the hands of schools and communities as they work together to support the learning of all their young people.

We welcome candidates from diverse backgrounds and perspectives who will enrich our focus on learners and the education workforce.

Mō tēnei tūranga – About the role

The Lead Adviser is responsible for the provision of communications advice, planning, support across years 1 to 13 and associated work programmes to support students to lift progress and achievement. They work within the Curriculum, Pathways and Progress team and across a broad range of communications activities and channels which will include working both internally and externally.

This role will also support the programme strategy development and planning to ensure the Ministry’s implementation communications and approach is well-informed, integrated with other Ministry work programmes, and is well implemented.

Mōhou ake – About you

We are looking for sharp thinkers with a flair for writing to help the Ministry’s curriculum teams provide high quality advice across a range of initiatives. These roles will suit people who care about inclusive and equitable teaching and learning and can bring their background experience and skills providing high quality services to ministers to the work of our curriculum teams.

Your personal qualities will include taking pride in producing written work and other forms of communication of the highest quality every time and having a proven ability to get the job done. You will be able to work at pace and manage set tasks and projects, but you also will notice pressure points, take the initiative, and act. In this role you will be expected to have the kind of interpersonal savviness that means you relate well with all kinds of people. We are looking for people that really understand the diversity of Aotearoa New Zealand and can communicate that through their work programme.

Understanding of the education system, including the New Zealand Curriculum, Te Marautanga o Aotearoa and Te Whāriki, is desirable.
