NZCER is an independent, not for profit, statutory body established in 1934. The NZCER Act requires the organisation to carry out and disseminate educational research, and provide information and advice.

Our people have expertise in both research and practice, and we are strongly connected to the education sector in Aotearoa New Zealand. We use the principles of the Treaty of Waitangi as the founding document of Aotearoa to help us uphold mana Māori in our work, relationships, and ways of working.
