Ministerial Cross-Sector Forum on Raising Achievement
The Minister of Education, Hon Hekia Parata established the Ministerial Cross-Sector Forum on Raising Achievement in June 2012. The purpose of the Forum is to provide collaborative cross-sector leadership and advice to the Minister on a quality achievement programme that will ensure every young person leaves school with the knowledge and skills they need to succeed. The aim is educational success for 5 out of 5 learners.
The Forum has met regularly in 2012 to consider key issues, such as quality leading and teaching, modern learning environments, public achievement information, our priority learners, early childhood education and achievement at Years 9 and 10. The Forum is committed to using research, collective knowledge, resources and networks to raise achievement across the system.
The Forum is made up of representatives from primary and secondary schools, early learning and tertiary education sectors, area schools, unions, business, academics, and iwi.
