The Ministry of Education has extended the closing date for public engagement on the NCEA Level 1 subject list to 20 July 2020. We released a draft list of Level 1 subjects for feedback on 20 February 2020.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the public engagement process was extended during the lockdown period. Although the volume of feedback has reduced, the Ministry has made this further extension to ensure that people who would like to have their say have an opportunity to do so.

Throughout the COVID-19 lockdown, the Ministry continued its work on the NCEA Change Programme. However, in light of public health guidelines, we could not undertake much of the sector engagement we had planned in April and May 2020 for the Review of Achievement Standards.

An update on the NCEA Change Programme will be provided in coming weeks.
