Data for wellbeing

Data for wellbeing aims to support the wellbeing and achievement of New Zealand learners by providing easily accessible, accurate, trusted and safe information.

About the data for wellbeing programme

Data for wellbeing enables information about learners to be collected and shared (subject to privacy and access rules) in timely ways with people and organisations that need it. 

This includes learner-specific information travelling with students as they move between schools and kura and other education providers.

It also enables the data and information we gather to be securely stored and managed, so it can be used as evidence to inform decision-making.

Aims of the programme

Data for wellbeing aims to ensure that:

  • parents, families and whānau have access to the information they need to help their children and young people succeed and reach their potential
  • Communities of Learning | Kāhui Ako are able to improve their collaborative monitoring, analysis, knowledge and understanding to improve outcomes for learners

  • students can access an enduring record of their progress
  • the administrative burden on education providers is reduced.
