The new home for NCEA

We are currently developing NCEA achievement standards and resources for learning areas, wāhanga ako, and subjects, in both the New Zealand Curriculum and Te Marautanga o Aotearoa. This site aims to support kaiako as they implement the changes to NCEA.

What's New

Government rephasing of the NCEA Change Programme
Following sector feedback, and advice from the Ministry of Education, NZQA and his NCEA Professional Advisory Group (PAG), the Minister has announced that the NCEA Change Programme will be rephased over an additional year to support the sector. For more information see: What is the NCEA Change Programme?


We have now released:


NZC Level 1 NCEA Pilot-ready materials

We have now released pilot-ready materials for NZC NCEA Level 1 subjects, including Health Studies and Music, available via the Subjects menu.


The Minister of Education has announced the NCEA subjects for The New Zealand Curriculum levels 2 & 3, and Te Marautanga o Aotearoa Level 1, 2 & 3 subjects.

The NCEA Subject List has 67 subjects: 56 from The New Zealand Curriculum, and 11 from Te Marautanga o Aotearoa.

We have now released the NCEA subjects for The New Zealand Curriculum levels 2 & 3, and Te Marautanga o Aotearoa Level 1, 2 & 3.


We’re in the process of strengthening NCEA by making a series of changes to improve well-being, equity, coherence, pathways and credibility—for students and teachers alike. Find out more about the NCEA Change programme.

 

Can I use these standards now?

Only if you are at a registered pilot school. All other teachers and students must continue to use existing standards and resources until they expire and new standards are registered. Find out more. Current standards and resources can be found at:
