A key area of CORE’s work is Research, with a particular focus on learning. We seek to support all learners to thrive in today’s world and build the capabilities that will enable them to learn, work and live well in the future.


Research and innovation is integral to our business. We work with educators, communities and organisations to undertake research and evaluation. We also provide research and evaluation advice and consultancy services.

Our organisation’s expertise lies in shaping the future of teaching and learning. It does this through promoting innovation and equity in areas such as curriculum, pedagogy and learning environments. We use creative ways to open research and knowledge to everyone.

We affirm key values and tikanga that are distinctive to Aotearoa-New Zealand, and uphold the distinctive realities, knowledge and experience of diverse communities.
