The Education Review Office provides evidence based evaluations and reports that help parents, teachers, managers in early learning services, school principals, school Boards of Trustees, and the new Communities of Learning │Kāhui Ako (groups of schools, kura and early learning service providers in a region working together), and government policy makers to:
understand the levers for increasing equity in devolved education systems;
create learning environments that address the needs of all children and young people; and
understand how they can make a real difference to the learning outcomes for their children.
The Chief Executive is accountable for ensuring the effective delivery of ERO’s functions, which are to:
evaluate the quality of education and care in schools and early learning services;
build and measure self-review and evaluative capability and practice within and across the education sector; and
evaluate the implementation of government education priorities across the system.
We are looking for a Chief Executive who is skilled at networking, influencing, innovating and profile raising, working across and with other agencies and groups within the education sector, and building strong relationships. The role will require you to have or have demonstrated specific education sector experience (or the ability to quickly build credibility); and expertise in evaluation, and review theory and practice. We are seeking a person who can also leverage ERO’s evaluative capabilities to benefit the wider education system and cross-sector initiatives.
