We want to hear your voice. We want you to be part of the conversation

Taking the conversation forward | Kia haere tonu ngā kōrero

We want to ensure that the future of learning in New Zealand is influenced by as many New Zealanders as possible. At both Summit events, Education Minister Chris Hipkins encouraged participants to take the conversation into their communities.

We have created some tools to help you engage with your friends, colleagues and communities to do just that.

There are 3 conversation tools – designed for an informal conversation for up to 5 people; for a session for 1 hour or so for up to 20 people in the classroom, your workplace or the community; and for running a co-design workshop for about 80 people. 

Te reo Māori versions of all these tools are also available.

Whether you have in mind a casual conversation over dinner, or a structured workshop in your communities, all contributions are useful, and we need your help to ensure everyone is heard.

Linking to the wider Education Work Programme | Te hono ki te Kaupapa Mātauranga whānui

Ideas from the Summit conversations, feedback from your local conversations and the survey responses will all feed into the Government’s Education Work Programme.

You can have your say on the various parts of the work programme as they go up on this site. Just go to any of the programme tiles on the site and give us your feedback on that issue.

Your Feedback | Ā koutou whakahoki kōrero

We want to hear what you come up with in your conversations. We’re working on an online feedback option for you to use.

In the meantime, please email us with your feedback at conversation@education.govt.nz.
