Education, Arts and Sport

The Education, Arts and Sport Policy Advisory Group (PAG) focuses on policy that supports New Zealand’s globally recognised education system and ensures it remains internationally competitive and forward-looking. We're also focused on supporting our arts and sports sectors to ensure they continue to grow and inspire the next generation.

We believe a strong education is the best foundation for the future. Engaging with Members of Parliament, sector leaders, professionals and stakeholders, the PAG works closely to develop policy and support National to remain at the forefront of education policy.  

The Education, Arts and Sport PAG is co-chaired by Mark Bridges and Erica Stanford MP.
