About Cognition Education

Students reading

Cognition Education started way back in 1989 with the goal of becoming New Zealand’s most innovative education provider.

Since then, our work’s taken us on a journey across this country, bringing new ideas and fresh inspiration to teachers, ākonga and whānau from all walks of life.

These days, we work alongside educators to develop learning solutions that give students the best possible platform to springboard from.

We also work directly with the Ministry of Education and other organisations to deliver larger projects throughout New Zealand.

How we work

The Cognition Way

The Cognition Way is our in-house methodology to support the effective co-discovery, co-design, co-delivery and co-evaluation of education improvement initiatives.

The first step of The Cognition Way is to support schools and give them the opportunity to share their challenges and aspirations. Then, we design professional learning and development experiences based on their unique and specific needs and what we know works best. Finally, we’ll go in and help grow the knowledge of teachers, giving them the skills to collaboratively lead their own learning and evaluation pathways.
