ERO's published Briefings to the Minister's Office.


ERO proactively releases material that the Minister of Education has seen from us as part of our ongoing commitment to openness and transparency.

The Minister of Education receives advice from us and considers the advice in light of the activities happening across the sector. Therefore some of these decision-making processes will take longer than others. This means that some material delivered to the Minister may relate to items that remain under active consideration and take longer to be proactively released.

Briefings will be released at the first possible opportunity.

If you need any additional information or want to lodge an Official Information request, please see our advice above.
