The new home for NCEA

New NCEA achievement standards and resources for both the New Zealand Curriculum and Te Marautanga o Aotearoa are currently being developed for learning areas and subjects. You can find some draft Level 1 Subjects here, with the remaining Levels to be released over following 4 years.

What's New

We have now released our responses to feedback on Phase 2 NCEA Level 1 New Zealand Curriculum subjects.


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?

Not yet. 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:
