NCEA subjects up for consultation

The education sector, students, their parents, whānau and communities are invited to share their thoughts on a list of proposed NCEA subjects released today, Education Minister Chris Hipkins says.

This is a significant part of the Government’s NCEA Change Programme that commenced in 2020 and will be largely implemented by 2025. The goal is strengthening NCEA for current and future learners across both the New Zealand Curriculum and Te Marautanga o Aotearoa.

“There are 62 subjects, including 13 new subjects in the New Zealand Curriculum that we want to discuss and develop, and 16 subjects, including seven new subjects for Te Marautanga o Aotearoa,” Chris Hipkins said.

“We are keeping many of the subjects that most people will be familiar with, and in many areas are not making major changes, such as with English and Pūtaiao. In others there are some adjustments, for example in the proposals to introduce new subjects in Social Sciences and Ngā Toi.

“The new subjects would offer further opportunities for learners, and ensure that more young people have options that excite and inspire them through school.

“All of the subjects confirmed following engagement with the sector will have comprehensive support behind them to ensure schools and teachers can successfully do their jobs of helping our young people to thrive and succeed,” he said.
