    He mea tārai e mātou te mātauranga kia rangatira ai, kia mana taurite ai ōna huanga.

    We work to shape an education system that delivers equitable and excellent outcomes.

    We help shape the policies, settings and performance of the education system for early learning, schooling and tertiary.

    We do this by building relationships and understanding the needs of those who receive our services.

    About our group and team

    The Secondary Tertiary team sits within the Te Poutāhū group and covers the transition from senior secondary through to tertiary and employment.

    Te Poutāhū works to make learning and teaching relevant, real and valued. We deliver and maintain critical services for the education sector to support responsive learner pathways from early childhood into further education, training, the workforce, and society.

    Te Poutāhū performs a crucial role working between the strategy and policy teams, and the sector facing functions. The Secondary Tertiary team is responsible for operational policy, curriculum and support programmes for Year 11-13 learners, and the secondary-tertiary interface.
