Kia ora koutou

Welcome to the home of the teaching and learning guides for senior secondary subjects. These guides have been designed to help teachers create quality teaching and learning programmes. They will support teachers in their planning for the alignment of standards to The New Zealand Curriculum.

The guides are under development and will become available progressively. They will be updated as we take on feedback and add new content. Read about the guides.
