The New Zealand Curriculum

Curriculum documents.

The National Curriculum is composed of The New Zealand Curriculum and Te Marautanga o Aotearoa which set the direction for student learning and provide guidance for schools as they design and review their curriculum.

Although both come from different perspectives, each start with a vision of young people developing the competencies they need for study, work, and lifelong learning, so they may go on to realise their potential.

This section of NZC Online replicates the published New Zealand Curriculum document. You can navigate through the sections of the curriculum using the left hand menu, or download the document as a PDF or Word using the links at the bottom of this page.
