People across the sector and community discuss future of learning at Education Summit

Hundreds of people from across the community and the education sector came together at the Education Summit in Christchurch on 5-6 May to discuss what learning should look like in the future.

The event featured people from all parts of the community, including young people, adult learners, parents, Māori, Pasifika, teachers, researchers and education leaders at all levels, disabled people and families and whānau of children and young people with learning support needs, disability organisations, and employers and industry.

Four Ministers attended, including Education Minister Chris Hipkins, along with Opposition spokespeople on education.

A second summit event will take place in Auckland on 12-13 May.

The summit events are a milestone in the Education Conversation | Kōrero Mātauranga, launched by Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern in March.

The Government wants to hear the views of all New Zealanders who have an interest in education to create a shared vision for the future.

A key feature of the kōrero is an online public survey, and as of 8 May, more than 8,000 survey responses had been completed.
