Nau mai haere mai. Welcome
At New Zealand School Trustees Association (NZSTA) we provide a range of services to all boards of trustees to support and enhance boards’ capability in governance and employment. We are the most influential leader of effective school governance in Aotearoa and we represent the interests of our member boards.
COVID Update: 1 March
Our Auckland staff will be working remotely for the week 1-5 March, due to COVID Alert Level 3. All other NZSTA staff will be working in mixed mode – either from our regional offices or working from home.

Education and Training Act Update
The Education and Training Act 2020 came into effect on 1 August 2020.
Many of the pages and resources on this website refer to legislation that no longer applies.
Please bear with us as we update our content to reflect the changes in the new Act.
