CORE Education is a not-for-profit educational research and development based organisation with an international reputation for support and promotion of the use of new technologies for learning across all education and training sectors.
CORE Education is devoted to improving education, and therefore ensures it is not only at the forefront of educational matters, but leading them.
CORE Education provides thought leadership and expertise in e-learning, research and analysis, curriculum design, leadership development, and event management.
CORE's reputation as thought leaders and skilful consultants, facilitators, mentors, and project managers is well known in the education and training sector within New Zealand and overseas.
CORE has a bi-cultural ethos, with a strong Māori team focussed on Māori educational development.
Through a variety of e-learning approaches, CORE Education equips learners of all ages with the skills and knowledge they need to succeed. CORE’s focus in e-learning includes both the pedagogical and technological aspects of e-learning. This includes expertise in learning design, online communities, online tools for e-learning, video conferencing, and the use of advanced networks.
CORE conducts quality research and evaluation relating to a range of national and international educational programmes in early childhood, schools, tertiary and industry sectors. CORE regularly reports to individual educational institutions, government, and international bodies on emerging trends involving the use of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) in education.
CORE has pioneered innovation within the school and ECE sector that has a strong emphasis on the development of curriculum and leadership, focused on localised and individualised needs, and delivered as whole-institution professional learning and development programmes.
CORE has managed New Zealand's major education events for some years, and built a reputation both in New Zealand and overseas for class keynotes, spotlights, and inspirational workshop programmes.
CORE's popular breakfast seminars held regularly in Christchurch and Wellington are now being extended to other centres around the country.
In 2010, CORE's inaugural EDtalks symposium was held in Wellington bringing together thought leaders, innovators, and experts within the education, technology, and business sectors to discuss the future of education in New Zealand. The symposium's success means that this will now become an annual event in the educational calendar.
