Help shape the future of Education

At the Ministry of Education, we work together to shape an education system that delivers equitable and excellent outcomes.

Our organisation is made up of more than 3,000 talented and committed people around New Zealand, from a wide range of backgrounds and cultures.

While we work in different groups and on different things, we all strive every day to make the biggest difference we can for every child, young person and adult student in our education system.

About our group and team

SE&S – Sector Enablement and Support

Our teams around the country work closely with the Early Childhood and Schooling sectors, providers, and communities to provide support, expertise and resources to help children and young people reach their full potential.

We also directly provide Learning Support for around 40,000 children and young people.

The Ministry of Education’s Te Kahu Tōī, Intensive Wraparound Service provides support to families and schools to help a small number of children and young people who have behaviour, social and/or learning needs that are highly complex and challenging (and may have associated intellectual difficulty), require support at school, at home and in the community and for whom all local services/supports have been fully utilised and are unable to meet their needs.

The Te Kahu Tōī, Intensive Wraparound Service will coordinate and develop an individualised plan that supports the student within the local school setting while working directly with families/whānau and the students at home and within the community settings, working collaboratively with education, health, welfare and other social service and community agencies.

About this role

The Senior Advisor, Te Kahu Tōī, Intensive Wraparound Service will be responsible for monitoring, analysing and reporting the provision and delivery of services in accordance with the goals, objectives and policies of the Ministry and the principles of the Te Kahu Tōī, Intensive Wraparound Service.

The Senior Advisor will maintain an open, responsive and inquiry-focused relationship with key stakeholders, as well as ensure service advice and communication is accurate, accessible and informative.

The role includes developing and reporting on indicators of performance, analysing and monitoring trends and contributing to evaluation work.

About you

To be successful in the role, you’ll be working collaboratively with Te Kahu Tōī teams, the wider Ministry and key external stakeholders to provide timely advice and support. You’ll be communicating your ideas through quality written advice. We’ll also count on you to shape, frame and improve our data collection, data analysis and reporting functions.

You will also offer:

  • Skills in using statistical and demographic analysis and qualitative and quantitative data research to inform and evaluate operational policy design.
  • A high level of skill in excel spreadsheets
  • Previous experience at a senior level in education, special education, health or welfare sectors.
  • Previous experience in supporting evaluations.
  • The ability to understand and apply the principles of Te Tiriti o Waitangi and tangatawhenuatanga.

You’ll be joining a small, high-performing national office team with a culture of constructive open-minded debate and working together to make an impact.

Are you ready to make a difference?

We welcome candidates from diverse backgrounds, including Māori, Pacific and those with disabilities, who will enrich our understanding of the education system.

As a government agency, the Ministry is committed to keeping to the Treaty of Waitangi’s guiding principles in our work for and with Māori students, their whānau, hapū and iwi.
