Education Partnership & Innovation Trust

EPIT provides a platform for project creators and funders to partner and make a positive impact in education.

Creating equitable education outcomes for learners

The New Zealand education system is still missing the mark for many - we need to bridge the gap.

There are many challenges we need to meet. If we're going to improve education inequity for our tamariki (children), rangatahi (youth) and learners we need to bring people from diverse backgrounds together to be the drivers of change. This is at the heart of the Education Partnership & Innovation Trust.

EPIT provides a transformative digital platform and a physical space to enable vibrant project collaborations and support that leads to true change.
