Proposed changes to amend the Education Review Office’s mandate

Closed 16 Jun 2021

Opened 21 Apr 2021


Education Review Office (ERO) review of Professional Learning and Development (PLD)

Have your say about amending ERO’s mandate to enable it to review PLD accessed by schools, kura and early learning services

High quality professional learning and development is an important lever to support teachers, kaiako, teacher-aides and leaders to strengthen their individual and collective capabilities throughout their careers, respond to emerging needs within the system and make a difference for every ākonga and their whānau.

PLD is provided through a range of mechanisms. Most is funded by the government, but schools, kura and early childhood settings also resource some PLD directly themselves.

We would like a better understanding of how PLD provision helps to improve teaching practice and enhance student learning.

To do this, the government is proposing to expand ERO’s functions to enable it to review the quality of the PLD accessed by schools, kura and early learning services.
