Education and Skills

Providing young people with access to opportunities to fulfil their aspirations and potential

Deloitte New Zealand partners with charitable organisations to scale up innovative programmes that have the potential to transform the way education and skills are delivered.

Deloitte New Zealand is committed to making a positive impact in education and skills with the understanding that societal and economic development will depend on the success of today's young people.

Our focus is on collaborating with high-impact not-for-profit organisations.

Graeme Dingle Foundation
Deloitte New Zealand and the Graeme Dingle Foundation have collaborated for 15 years to support youth development in New Zealand. Deloitte sponsorship has supported the foundation to deliver a suite of programmes that help children to reach their full potential through building self-esteem, promoting good values and teaching valuable life, education and health skills.

Deloitte staff are involved with the governance of the Graeme Dingle Foundation local affiliates at a regional level.

In addition, each year the firm hosts The Prime Minister’s dinner where senior leaders from business have an opportunity to engage with the Prime Minister and the foundation on issues of social, environmental and economic importance. In addition we also support the Graeme Dingle Foundation Excellence Awards through providing a development workshop for the nominees.

Teach First NZ 
Teach First NZ seek to tackle educational inequality by developing top graduates into highly effective teachers and inspirational leaders in all fields. One of Deloitte Global’s signature programmes, Teach First has been shown to improve both the school’s overall teaching outcomes and teachers’ professional development opportunities. A Founding Advisory Supporter since 2011, we partner with Teach First to deliver events including their candidate assessment days, participants’ leadership development activities and educational debates. We also provided pro bono services and have historically had Teach First NZ located in the Auckland Deloitte office.
