Ministry of Education NZSTA survey

Each year the Ministry of Education undertakes a survey about the services NZSTA is contracted to provide to boards. This is an important way the Ministry checks in with you about your experience of the services NZSTA offers and our progress on key performance measures as agreed in our contract with the Ministry.

The survey can be completed by each individual board member regarding their own personal experience of NZSTA’s services. You can access the survey here.

Term 4 

NZSTA wish you and your school, all the very best for the final term of 2023, it has been another big year in the education sector. Remember, we are just a phone call or email away and here to help you.
