Our Story

The Mind Lab launched in 2013 to support education innovation, contemporary practice and the pursuit of highly relevant, applied knowledge in classrooms to improve education access and outcomes.

Our mission is to continue to lead New Zealand education, to share knowledge, to collaborate, and to build partnerships in order to achieve sustainable, impactful change.

With a suite of Postgraduate qualifications, workshops, programmes and online learning platforms, The Mind Lab has become New Zealand’s only dedicated Postgraduate Facility for Contemporary Education.

We’ve formally accredited thousands of educators with our Postgraduate Certificate in Digital & Collaborative Learning, and in 2018 launched the Master of Contemporary Education for those who are ready to go even further.

We’ve helped Teach First NZ get 120 brand new teachers into the workforce with our Master of Teaching & Education Leadership, and guided more than 12,000 educators through the 2020 changes to the curriculum with our online course, Digital Passport.

The Mind Lab (including its subsidiary Tech Futures Lab) is a Tertiary Education Organisation registered by the Tertiary Education Commission (TEC) to deliver qualifications approved by the New Zealand Qualifications Authority (NZQA) under the provision of the Education Act 1989.
