Education and training statistics give you information about achievement in secondary school education, and post-school and tertiary education. We also provide statistics about loans taken out to fund tertiary study.
Education in New Zealand is a primary mechanism for the development of skills within the population. Formal education affects everyone from under five years of age (for pre-schoolers) to 16 years (the school leaving age). Many choose to do tertiary study. Formal education is compulsory for those aged 6 to 16 years.
