We want your view on Student Voice in tertiary education.

In 2018, we started a conversation with New Zealand about what matters most in education. As part of the Kōrero Mātauranga, we have heard from students, whānau, educators and communities about the importance of student voice to students and providers.

We also heard there are pockets of good practice in our tertiary system where student voice is listened to and incorporated. But there is also room for improvement.

We want to hear what students, staff, providers, education agencies and organisations, whānau, ‘aiga, and communities think about student voice. This knowledge will help shape our thinking around ways to enhance this voice.

We have done some initial thinking about possible ways to enhance student voice. These are detailed in this discussion paper.


How can you get involved?

We want to hear your views on how student voice currently works and could be improved. We also want to hear your feedback on the possible focus areas we have developed for strengthening student voice in tertiary education.

We encourage you to read the discussion paper and share it with your friends and colleagues.

In the week of 19 August, a survey will go live here with questions around student voice and the focus areas in the discussion paper. The survey will be open until Friday 4 October.

If you have any questions about the work on enhancing student voice in the tertiary education, please contact us at the Tertiary Strategy Mailbox: Tertiary.Strategy@education.govt.nz
