We want to ensure everything we develop to support the NCEA changes will work in practice and meet the five principles of a strong NCEA qualification – coherence, credibility, equity and inclusion, pathways and well-being.

To do this, we are working in partnership with a diverse range of people to implement the NCEA Change Programme.

Around 50 Subject Expert Groups – comprised of about 400 practising teachers, academics and representatives from the tertiary and industry sectors – have been set up to help develop new achievement standards and supporting teaching and assessment resources for each subject.

We have established four NCEA Panels to ensure a diversity of New Zealanders – Māori, Pacific communities, people with disabilities, and industry and vocational employers – have a voice in the design and implementation of the NCEA changes.

Feedback Hubs have also been established at eight schools across New Zealand to seek feedback from students, teachers, school leaders, parents, whānau, Board of Trustees and other members of the school community.
