The Ministry recently restructured itself to begin changing how it works with its customers. It wants to understand, listen, and work more collaboratively with its customers in the regions to support the education sector better and deliver inclusive education that meets the needs of students, parents, whānau and communities.
This research will give us the knowledge to change how we interact with you by:
By listening and responding differently, we will know how, where and when you want to hear from us, what you want and need from education and how we can keep improving what we provide.
Capturing the voices of many will give us the data to back our actions and the decisions we make. This data, although it is not associated with any one individual, means we will be able to build a rich, in-depth picture of you as an individual, or as groups of people with similarities (e.g., cultures, regions, needs, and challenges). We will understand why your needs are different, your values, your life experiences, and your expectations from education.
Our plan is to run this type of survey annually so we can make sure we are truly representing what kiwis want from education in Aotearoa.
