Refreshed learning area
Refreshed English learning area
The English learning area has been refreshed as part of the wider changes to The New Zealand Curriculum.
We engaged widely with the education sector on developing this learning area, and we now have a final draft. There may be some final adjustments before the fully refreshed NZC is ready to be implemented from the beginning of 2027.
Supporting resources and material to help teach English are also being developed and will be ready in Term 3, 2023.
The refreshed learning area can be downloaded here.
In developing this learning area, we incorporated feedback from the education sector, ākonga, whānau, iwi and communities.
The New Zealand Council for Educational Research (NZCER) report English learning area: Feedback on components of The New Zealand Curriculum Refresh provides analysis of feedback on the draft refreshed English learning area received from public consultation.
English: What you told us and how we responded shows how we responded to the feedback.
WE WANT TO HEAR FROM YOU
Your input into what will happen with the education system will influence positive changes that will benefit all ākonga. Te Mahau and Te Tāhuhu o Te Mātauranga values your contribution.
