Curriculum timelines

It is critical our education system continues to evolve and remains focussed on delivering equitable and excellent outcomes for all Aotearoa New Zealand’s children and young people.

Developed by Te Poutāhū | Curriculum Centre, the programme to refresh The New Zealand Curriculum and redesign Te Marautanga o Aotearoa is underway, aimed at ensuring all ākonga experience rich and responsive learning.

These changes will also honour our past and obligations to Te Tiriti o Waitangi.

At the same time, changes are taking place or have been proposed, for early learning and NCEA. The changes follow extensive engagement and consultation with the education sector, communities and learners.

We have developed a series of interactive timelines that illustrate key milestones for curriculum and assessment work programmes.

Sector collaboration - We collaborate with sector groups across our curriculum and assessment work programmes.
