Quality New Zealand Education was founded as part of a wider vision to facilitate access to New Zealand’s exceptional and future focused educational programmes in ways that will empower and inspire the learners.

New Zealand's culture and values are deeply intertwined with the culture and beliefs of our Tangata Whenua (indigenous) Māori people.

We take our organisation’s core values from the traditional Māori cultural concepts:

Kaitiakitanga – Stewardship and sustainability, caring for the environment for future generations.

Kotahitanga – Solidarity and partnership for greater impact

Manaakitanga – Practicing respect, generosity and care for others in all of our actions.

Whai Rawa – Creating Intergenerational wealth and legacies
