Advice seen by our Ministers

We proactively release material that the Minister and Associate Ministers of Education have seen from us as part of our ongoing commitment to openness and transparency.

The Ministers of Education receive a wide range of advice from us, and are expected to make a wide range of decisions across the education sector. Some of these decision making processes will take longer than others. This means that some material delivered to the Ministers may relate to items that remain under active consideration, and take longer to be proactively released.

When we are able to, we will release these documents, with some redactions made in line with the withholding grounds under the Official Information Act. These withholding grounds are detailed below. 

This information is released in two stages. Each week, we release a list of the titles of briefings and reports that the Minister received from the Ministry. Once a month, we release the full text of advice received.

If you need any additional information or want to lodge a request for official information, email: enquiries.national@education.govt.nz

Request a PDF in an accessible format

Documents are available in Adobe PDF format only. Accessible versions, where available, can be supplied on request.
