Support during the COVID-19 lockdown

In light of New Zealand entering COVID-19 Alert Level 4, our offices are temporarily closed, but Evaluation Associates remains open to support you while working remotely.

We are committed to supporting leaders and teachers during this lockdown. Our staff – facilitators and leadership advisors – are supporting schools virtually through various online platforms and will continue to be available for the duration of our nationwide lockdown.

If you are already working with us:

  • Leadership advisors are continuing to provide support for beginning principals and other principals through professional learning groups and specific support.
  • Facilitators continue to be available for schools, kura and Kāhui Ako they are working with.

In most cases, support will move to an online platform – Skype or Zoom or your preferred platform, or if you have connectivity issues, we can also provide support over the phone.

We are conscious that your needs may have changed, and we are able to adapt to your unique situation and context. For example, if you are trying to develop or plan a distance learning curriculum, we will be able to help you with this.

If you are looking for support during this time:

If you need to help to plan and implement a quality distance learning curriculum, our team are able to help. We have facilitation team members available to help you and your school, kura or Kāhui Ako, with support. To access this support please email:

If you are a principal looking for support, our leadership advisors are available to help. You may want to have a quick check-in with someone or the support you need may be more intensive. To access support please email:

As you lead and teach through these extraordinary circumstances, we want to assure you our support will be timely, targeted, focused, and planned around your needs and your context.

Please get in touch to find out how we can help.

Be kind. Stay home. Wash hands. We’re all in this together.
