What is the Action Plan for Pacific Education?
The Action Plan for Pacific Education (the Action Plan) maps the Government’s commitment to transforming outcomes for Pacific learners and families and signals how early learning services, schools and tertiary providers can achieve change for Pacific learners and their families.
The Action Plan was launched in July 2020 and set out the Government actions we had committed to in 2020. We committed to regularly monitor and report on the progress of the Action Plan and to regularly update the Government actions in the Action Plan to make sure that we capture all the work Government is doing.

The five key shifts
The Action Plan identifies five key shifts and a set of actions that are needed to achieve this vision:
- Work reciprocally with diverse Pacific communities to respond to unmet needs, including growing and supporting Pacific bilingual and immersion education pathways;
- Confront systemic racism and discrimination in education;
- Enable every teacher, leader and educational professional to take coordinated action to become culturally competent with diverse Pacific learners;
- Partner with families to design education opportunities together with teachers, leaders and educational professionals so aspirations for learning and employment can be met; and
- Grow, retain and value highly competent teachers, leaders and educational professionals with diverse Pacific whakapapa.
The Action Plan has resources and guidance for early learning services, schools, tertiary providers and families and communities, including planning templates.
