Learning Support Update information release

On Thursday 24 November 2016, the Minister of Education Hon Hekia Parata released the Learning Support Update – Next Steps Cabinet paper.

The Ministry of Education has published the Learning Support Update – Next Steps Cabinet paper and appendices below, which outline our next steps to modernise and improve learning support to make it easy to access, child focused, flexible and better integrated with the wider education sector.

Special education is a major priority for the Ministry and we are working with others to improve the system through the Learning Support (previously Special Education) Update.

We’re looking at the whole education system, including our Ministry of Education responsibilities, from early childhood through to tertiary education.

The Learning Support Update is about putting learners who need support at the heart of everything we do.
