Inspiration in Education Symposium

A Ministry of Education event


Inspiration in Education – Alternative ways of being and doing

moe 0

Educational success depends on the efforts and support of many people.

As catalysts, we play a crucial role in shaping, supporting and enabling successful learning pathways for all.

By working together we create sustainable relationships with children, parents and whānau.  

How do you get the most from the huge commitment in time, energy and resources that you put in to maximise learning opportunities?  The Ministry is offering you some thoughtful and innovative approaches to provoke your thinking.
