About Future Learning Solutions
Future Learning Solutions combines research from the University of Auckland with the service quality of UniServices to deliver a range of education solutions.
Each of our centres has passionate and experienced specialists dedicated to delivering professional learning and development for educators in schools across New Zealand, Pacific and Australia.
Our centres are focused on a different element of the education system, allowing us to span the education sector and deliver the right solutions for our audience.
Our Business Innovation team has been created to support our centres through developing evaluation frameworks, delivering operational excellence, applying business best practice, and ensuring quality and consistency across our solutions.
Collaborate • Innovate • Inspire
We believe that our work needs to be developed in collaboration with our partners, educators, whānau, communities and ākonga.
Our structure allows us to innovate, adapting to changing needs and creating solutions to support educators where it is needed.
We aim to inspire the education community to think differently about what education can be and their own ability to create change.
Poipoia te pā harakeke
He puāwaitanga anamata.
Through nurturing learners, educators, leaders, and communities our future will flourish.
The Centre for Hauora and Wellbeing Education works with schools to improve the quality of teaching and learning in physical education, activity, sport, wellbeing and hauora.
Our team is made up of teachers who are passionate about the role of health and physical education in impacting learner outcomes.
We believe that by improving the hauora and wellbeing of NZ's young people we can set them on a path of lifelong learning for themselves and in their relationships with others.
Partnering with Sport New Zealand to deliver the play.sport pilot over the last two years has resulted in more than 40 schools participating in the programme throughout Upper Hutt and Waitakere.

The Centre for Languages supports educators and the wider community to develop and deliver language learning programmes in a range of different ways.
Through our Learning Languages programme we offer one-off events and workshops, six month and one-year programmes to support teacher reflection and practice.
There are immersion programmes and grants for teachers to experience the culture of a language, and many more opportunities and resources for teachers of languages in New Zealand.
We believe that those who learn, experience and practice more than one language are better set for growth, success and security in their lives.
The Centre for Educational Leadership continues the work of Distinguished Professor Emeritus Viviane Robinson, Professor Helen Timperley and others, working with school leaders to develop their professional skills and capabilities.
We offer many solutions, including workshop delivery of our Open-to-learning™ Leadership and Growing Great Leaders™ programmes, in-school consultancies, support to communities of learning, induction programmes for newly appointed principals and the development of leadership for international principals.
We believe when leaders focus more on the core business of teaching and learning, the greater their influence will be on positive student outcomes.
The Centre for Literacy Learning works with school leaders and teachers to raise the literacy teaching capability within their schools.
Our team is made up of highly experienced facilitators and tutors, many of which have been part of this work for more than 10 years.
We believe that each child deserves the same opportunities to succeed in life, and through early interventions we can support those who need it.
Reading Recovery is an early literacy intervention designed to significantly reduce the number of children with literacy difficulties in schools.
The intervention has been in NZ schools for 40 years, offering tutor training and qualifications for professionals and adopted in a number of countries including USA, Canada and the UK
The Centre for Pacific-led Education Solutions is focused on using Pacific ways of knowing and being to establish culturally responsive learning solutions across the Pacific and New Zealand, which support Pacific children to excel.
Partnering across the Pacific Islands with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs & Trade (NZ Aid programme) and Pacific Island ministries of education to increase literacy standards in cities and provinces, has resulted in several context-based programmes to enhance teaching practices, reaching over 200 teachers and 6,000 students.
We believe that cultural heritage, faith, family and service are important values to be passed from generation to generation.
Te Whānau Maioha, The Centre for Māori Education, was originally a part of the University of Auckland Faculty of Education - Te Puna Wānanga and over that time became a leading provider of Māori Medium professional learning development.
With strengths in mathematics (Pāngarau) and in Te Reo Māori in English Medium PLD, we also offer solutions specialising in student achievement in Māori and the use of multi-media, all backed by research from Te Puna Wānanga.
We believe that where there is change and growth our future as Māori is assured.
Toi te korure, toi tū te tupu, he putanga anamata.
