Shaping Education – Future Directions
A strong education system, from early childhood to tertiary, will be critical to the redevelopment of greater Christchurch and its economy in the wake of the earthquakes of 2010 and 2011.
This is why the Ministry of Education has worked with the community and the sector to develop a plan for renewal that will meet the educational needs of children and young people, and support social, cultural and economic recovery.
This will involve an investment by the Government of up to $1 billion to develop greater Christchurch as a leading education community setting new standards of excellence in teaching, learning and research.
This renewal planning has been informed by Directions for Education Renewal in Greater Christchurch – the Education Renewal Recovery Programme, developed following your submissions to the Shaping Education consultation process and the knowledge and expertise of educational leaders, teachers, city and business leaders, and Ngai Tāhu. It also takes into account broader decisions being made about the overall future of Christchurch.
