Refreshing our national curriculum for schooling
The national curriculum for schooling will be refreshed over the next five years to ensure it is clearer, more relevant and easier to use.
The curriculum refresh was announced by Associate Ministers of Education, Jan Tinetti and Kelvin Davis.
In September 2019 the Minister of Education, the Hon Chris Hipkins, announced the need to refresh the national schooling curriculum to ensure it remains fit for purpose and clear about the most important learning that can’t be left to chance.
Since then the Ministry has been working with people from the education sector and wider communities to really understand how to make the improvements needed for students to succeed now and in the future.
An example of what the refreshed content could look like is the draft curriculum content for Aotearoa New Zealand’s histories and Te Takanga o Te Wā, which is open for public feedback:
