“Education project has Future extended”

Education project Secondary Futures will continue to help New Zealanders create a vision for the future of secondary education as a result of a $3.53 million funding commitment in yesterday’s Budget 2006.

Spread over a three-year term, the continued funding demonstrates confidence in the work completed by the project so far.

Since its inception in 2003, Secondary Futures has focused on helping New Zealanders build the capacity to think about the future of education and what this means for schooling.

Secondary Futures has attracted international recognition as a leading member of the OECD’s Schooling for Tomorrow project.

“We’ve found a way to help people have a conversation about the future, where the facts are unknown. This means that education sector leaders, government agencies, local communities and students are all having a say in how schooling might be so that we are ready to face that future world,” says Chief Executive Nicola Meek.

A recent external evaluation of the project’s effectiveness indicates that Secondary Futures has already helped drive change in schools.

Over the next three years Secondary Futures aims to meet the challenge of moving thinking and decision making in education into a longer timeframe, to help more students become more successful in the future.
