This year we will be developing new literacy and numeracy Unit Standards as part of the NCEA Review. The new standards and associated materials will be developed by Subject Expert Groups (SEGs) who will identify the significant learning within literacy and numeracy and lead the development of standards and supporting materials.

We are calling for Expressions of Interest to join a literacy SEG and numeracy SEG for English-medium.
