The Learning Progression Frameworks

The Ministry has launched a new resource for teachers and school leaders – The Learning Progression Frameworks (LPF). All teachers of students in years 1-10 are able to access the LPF.    

The LPF is an online tool that illustrates the significant steps that students take as they develop their expertise in reading, writing and mathematics from Years 1-10, spanning levels 1-5 of the New Zealand Curriculum (NZC). 
The LPF builds on the NZC, and it underpins the Progress and Consistency Tool (PaCT) for Years 1-8 (curriculum levels 1-4), creating a powerful toolbox for planning and assessing progress. 
The addition of curriculum level 5 means it can bridge the gap between primary and secondary schools to more effectively support a learner pathway.  
The LPF site contains interactive PLD modules. Feedback from teachers trialling the frameworks has been positive and the majority of leaders said the modules provided solid support to drive their own professional development.
