Mātau rōpū ake | About our ministry, group, and team
At Te Tāhuhu o te Mātauranga, we work to provide services and support nationally, regionally and locally to the education sector, and in some cases, directly to ākonga and whanau. To better deliver on this, we are undergoing an organisational design change. The transition phase to improve the way we deliver our purpose will be complete in 2023.
Te Pae Aronui was established within Te Mahau to provide the education sector with support and services that are more locally responsive, more accessible, and integrated.
It is the place where everything Te Tāhuhu does for ākonga can come together. We gather insights, regulate, have service design and delivery functions, understand ākonga, whānau, communities and businesses - and use that to shape and influence the direction of education in Aotearoa New Zealand.
As part of Te Mahau, we work with whānau, hāpu, iwi, early learning services and schools / kura, to support ākonga and kaiako to create interactions in the magic space where learning happens.
We have a critical role to support a proactive and future-focused Te Tāhuhu that delivers on equity and excellence for all ākonga. By 2025, we aspire to transform Te Pae Aronui so that: people are thriving, connections are strong, the system is sound, and we are producing equitable outcomes for ākonga and whānau.
The Business Analysis and Systems team supports the wider Te Pae Aronui Group to maximise the ability of the Ministry to deliver on its purpose. We understand that to get the best outcomes for children, young people and adult students, our people need data and information to aid in making ideal decisions.
We provide data and information to ensure the provision of information and analysis to build the capability of the Group to develop effective policy, design effective operational policy framework and plan the effective implementation of that policy.
