National has an unrelenting focus on lifting achievement at all levels of our education system. We’re making record investments in early childhood education, lifting teacher quality, and ensuring more young adults leave school with the qualifications they need to get a job or continue with further education. Kids are starting in education earlier, staying longer, and leaving better qualified. But we can always do more.

The Education Policy Advisory Group joins National Party members with a strong interest or professional background in education who contribute their expertise and experience to National’s important work in education, from early childhood to tertiary.
