Help shape the future of Education

At the Ministry of Education, we work together to shape an education system that delivers equitable and excellent outcomes.

Our organisation is made up of more than 3,000 talented and committed people around New Zealand, from a wide range of backgrounds and cultures.

While we work in different groups and on different things, we all strive every day to make the biggest difference we can for every child, young person and adult student in our education system. 

About our group and team

The Parent Information Community Intelligence group designs and drives initiatives that support parents, whānau, hapū, iwi, employers, and communities (demand side groups) to positively influence our education system and help every New Zealander learn, progress and achieve.

Families are the most powerful influence on a child's progression and achievement. Building powerful reciprocal partnerships between whānau, communities and educators will help raise aspirations and lift progress and achievement for all learners.

The Programme Delivery team co-design, prototype, implement and support the delivery of programmes that have a deliberate focus on localised curriculum and contextualised learning, identity, language and culture as core components particularly in the area of Māori and Pacific learning, progress and achievement.

About this role

The Integration Advisor (Principal Advisor) will work primarily in the Talanoa Ako programme and focused on ensuring that all Ministry work programmes appropriately consider the needs of demand side groups. They work collaboratively across the Ministry and education agencies to amplify the voices of these stakeholders and ensure their perspectives and aspirations are integrated into work across the Ministry.

About you

Are you energetic and self-motivated? Do you like variety and challenge? Do you have a passion for improving educational achievement for all students/children, particularly Māori and Pacific, by working as part of a community?

Do you have demonstrated expertise or practical experience in the compulsory education sector?

If you have answered yes to these questions and are committed to adding value to our organisation, then we would like to hear from you. Please review the position description attached.

Are you ready to make a difference?
