Cognition Education’s response to COVID-19 for New Zealand Schools

We understand this is a stressful time for you, your learners and your community and we wish to let you know that you have our full support as fellow educators. We appreciate the suddenness of which school closures have been announced and Cognition is here to help.

Cognition Education is re-focusing our consultants and our work to ensure we can fully support your school’s priorities during the COVID-19 pandemic. If there is any way we can help you and your team, please let us know immediately through your local consultant and/or [email protected].

Below are some ways we might be able to help you right now.

Digital fluency for teachers to connect with students
Our digital technology team can provide online support for your teachers who require readiness to connect with their students remotely.

Support for school leaders
Across the Cognition team we have the depth of expertise to respond and offer support to principals and leadership teams. We can support you as a critical friend in how you can best support your teachers, parents and communities. We can also support you to continue to meet Ministry of Education requirements in this rapidly changing environment.

Professional learning and development (PLD) can be delivered online
The MoE have approved that existing PLD hours can be delivered online e.g. via Skype or Zoom. As always, the PLD we offer is individually tailored to your current needs, plans and desired outcomes.

If you have queries, please contact your PLD facilitator or email [email protected].

Together we can ensure our learners and staff continue to receive the very best education and support during this challenging time.

We are here to help.

Kia kaha. Kia atawhai.
