COMET Auckland is an independent charitable trust and a Council Controlled Organisation of Auckland Council. We are here to advance education for Auckland by supporting and connecting education initiatives across the city. We do this by listening, sharing learning, coordinating, collaborating and analysing data that forms an evidence-based decision making process. As a CCO we play an important role as intermediary, advocate, and connector between the Council, the education sector, and the many different education, skills and training providers in Auckland.
Our current work includes:
Matauranga Maori & the Tamaki Makaurau Education Forum
Auckland Languages Strategy & Te Reo Maori
Youth Employability Programme: Licence to Work
Talking Matters – an early language campaign
Data Snapshots – on skills & education for the Auckland region and local boards
SouthSci – a participatory science programme linking schools, communities, researchers and businesses. Auckland STEM Alliance.
