Curriculum design and review

Is it time for your school to review where you are at with delivering the New Zealand Curriculum?

We can support you to embed the principles and practices of the NZC to its innovative extent.

The NZC, although it’s been around for quite some time now, is still seen as ground-breaking, particularly in its challenge to schools to include concepts such as the key competencies in their teaching and learning programmes. 


We can support teachers and leaders to implement the full intent of the NZC: 

  • NZC principles and values
  • Key competencies
  • Effective pedagogy and assessment
  • Teaching as inquiry
  • e-learning

    Has it been a few years since you reviewed your curriculum?

    We can help you with curriculum review and design.

    We provide in-school support for school leaders and teachers to design and review their curriculum.  Reviews can be school wide, or focused on a learning area, or a year group. They may also be about your systems and processes and their alignment to your school's strategic vision. 

    Following a review you will have excellent baseline information for future planning. You will also have a model for subsequent reviews.
