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.

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 Provider Services team is part of Learning Support Delivery.
About this role
We have four vacancies in our team - one Lead Advisor, two Senior Advisors and one Advisor.
The Provider Services team funds and supports education services and initiatives that help children and young people stay engaged in learning. Some examples include the Attendance Service, Alternative Education, Activity Centres, Teen Parent Units, the Boarding Allowance, and education provision in Oranga Tamariki care and youth justice facilities.

- the ability to understand and apply the principles of Te Tiriti o Waitangi and tangata whenuatanga.
You'll be joining a high-performing and responsive team that works across a wide range of initiatives and programmes. The environment is supportive and can be fast paced. You may need to juggle competing priorities and urgent timeframes.
As an organisation, we are committed to diversity and building racial equity and excellence in the education sector.
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.
