Our story

We were mandated to lift the status of the teaching profession, and help build understanding of the role quality teaching and educational leadership plays in contributing to the wellbeing of New Zealand. Evidence shows the quality of teaching and educational leadership has a significant effect on raising student achievement. We will support system changes to improve the quality of teaching and educational leadership to get better learning outcomes for students.
