Methodology

Approach to this study

This report examines the work of seven schools. These schools had approached enterprise in different ways. They have achieved different levels of success and faced different sorts of challenges. Their stories reflect many of the issues ERO has observed in its examination of how schools have implemented The New Zealand Curriculum and how they have developed enterprising approaches to learning.

As part of this evaluation, ERO visited each of these schools to report on how the schools have continued to develop their enterprising approaches to learning. We examined documentation and talked to school leaders, external PLD providers, teachers, students and business and community partners.
