Curricula and NCEA big change information relevant for ITEs

Together, the Ministry of Education (Ministry) and Initial Teacher Education (ITE) leads are building stronger connections and providing opportunities to engage on the big curricula and NCEA changes.

What’s happening?

In 2021, the Ministry and ITE leads agreed to develop stronger connections to provide better ongoing support for teacher education students. Through partnering, resourcing, and communications we are running a series of hui between 2022-2025 to deliver the most up-to-date, relevant information for teacher educators about the big curricula and NCEA changes.

The ITE leads include:

These forums have provided updates on:

  • Te Marautanga o Aotearoa
  • Te Whāriki a te Kōhanga Reo
  • Te Whāriki: He Whāriki mātauranga mō ngā mokopuna o Aotearoa Early childhood curriculum
  • Te Mātaiaho | the refreshed NZ curriculum
  • NCEA changes.
