About us

Education.govt.nz is the new portal for education information in New Zealand, maintained by the Ministry of Education.

The site is designed to help you find what you need about education in New Zealand. The main part of the site contains information organised around the three education stages: early learning, schooling, and further education. These sections contain a range of information and links to other sites, and includes general information, as well as more specialised topics for educators and administrators.

There is also a section with information specifically for parents and whānau (external link) .

We are continuing to work on education.govt.nz and will be adding more content over the coming months. Please let us know what information is most important to you, what’s working and what’s not working so we can keep improving the site to meet your needs.

Education in New Zealand is administered by a number of government agencies. Find out more about the agencies involved in education.
