The Government is looking at ways to strengthen NCEA that will benefit all our young people. But we need your help to make it happen. Recently the Government decided to extend this phase of engagement on the future of NCEA by one month, to 19 October 2018.
So far over 6,000 people have had their say on NCEA.
We continue to want to hear from New Zealanders from all backgrounds. Everyone with an interest in NCEA is invited to share their experiences and ideas. You can choose to fill in a survey in English, Te Reo Māori, Samoan, Tongan, Niuean, Hindi, New Zealand Sign Language or simplified Chinese, and you can do it online or on paper, at workshops or hui, or through social media - you choose.
You can also make a full written submission, even if you have already filled out a survey.
We want to make it as easy as possible for everyone to participate in the discussion about the future of NCEA.
Through the Make your Mark competition, we are challenging young New Zealanders from 5-20 years' old to share their vision of what education might look like in the future.
The Minister of Education appointed a Ministerial Advisory Group to explore ideas for how to strengthen NCEA.
These Big Opportunities were intended to provoke, inspire, and encourage the kōrero on NCEA, but some people are worried they are concrete recommendations to government. This is not the case. We welcome any feedback and ideas people have for ways to strengthen NCEA, and we encourage people to fill in a survey, or make a submission and have their say, even if they have already submitted on the Big Opportunities.
