We want to ensure that our education system gives all young New Zealanders the skills that they need for the future. We are one of the fastest growing economies in the developed world and we need to make sure that every child is able to share in the benefits of our growing and diverse nation.

We are focused on making sure all young Kiwis can read, write, do maths and be digitally fluent. We also understand the importance of young people being healthy and well-rounded.

Over the next five years our plan will improve and better track how our learners are progressing, and upskill young New Zealanders for the digital world.

We will improve access to languages, boost health and learning support services, and continue to invest in modern learning environments by upgrading school buildings
