How can you use the NZC as a driver for curriculum change?

What the research says

The NZC Update issue 11 summarises the findings of the Monitoring and Evaluating the Implementation of the New Zealand Curriculum (MECI) project:

'The research found that the two factors that most strongly influenced the degree of change in practice were the respondent's confidence (the single strongest factor) and her or his perception of the quality of internal support. This included collegial support from other staff, the teaching resources available, and the effectiveness of professional development organised and led by the school.'
