about nw3

We focus on four key areas providing a valuable perspective and high-quality education offerings: culture, technology innovation, creativity and sustainability. We work with education providers across the country to continually add new courses on these topics.


Our approach is informed by the Māori intergenerational value of kaitiakitanga. This inspires us to care for people and places, thinking about the world we want to leave for our children and future generations to come. It’s this mindset that leads us to create education programmes for a better tomorrow.

tech innovation

Aotearoa New Zealand is home to many tech innovators, and is rich in information technology. Mission New Zealand harnesses this, arming our students with the skills and knowledge to innovate and solve problems for the future, making a positive impact on their communities.


A New Zealand education encourages diversity, empathy and a fresh way of looking at the world, and Mission New Zealand courses will teach you how to apply your knowledge to the world and prepare you for the changing world of work. We aim to inspire learners to do great things.


In Aotearoa New Zealand, we have a rich legacy of ingenious inventions and solutions that are born from curiosity and challenging the status quo. We call this the pōtiki spirit. Pōtiki is the name for the youngest child in a Māori family – the curious one, the mischievous one, the one who holds no fear or inhibition to look beyond.
