  2. Curriculum Advisory Group (CAG) report  – the CAG was established as an independent panel of experts commissioned to advise the Ministry on the draft DT & HM curriculum content and provide recommendations on feedback received during consultation as collated in the Martin Jenkins consultation process report.
  3. Summary report   – outlines:
    • the process for developing and consulting on the draft curriculum content
    • the changes noted, and responded to, on the DT & HM curriculum content after considering submissions received

A fourth report, The Ministry of Education’s response to the Curriculum Advisory Group Report, will be available on request.

The new curriculum content will be gazetted in December. It will be available for all state and state-integrated schools and kura to use in their teaching and learning programmes from the beginning of the 2018 school year.
