We seek to revolutionise the delivery of the curriculum through technology that empowers, prepares and supports the next generation of leaders.

The New Era Story

Across education, from students and teachers to ICT managers, New Era empowers educational organisations to bring the digital education revolution to life.

Back in 1996, we set out to become recognised as New Zealand’s leader in the delivery of next-generation education solutions. Our vision was to be the partner of choice for primary, secondary & tertiary education providers as well as the Ministry of Education working to enhance student achievement and promote new models of learning.

It’s been quite a journey, one that has taken us from a small education services provider to the largest integrated education solutions and services company in NZ. Following our merger in 2011 with Editure, New Era now spans New Zealand, Australia, the United Kingdom and the United States and brings unparalleled global and local understanding of educational ICT solutions to our customers.

Today more than two million educators, students and parents globally trust New Era’s ICT and professional development solutions to enhance and achieve their education experiences and goals. With more than 120 employees in NZ and 350 globally, it is New Era’s knowledge and understanding of the education environment along with its vast experience in state-of-the-art, high quality ICT solutions that allows New Era to stand out from the competition.

Like our customers we’re excited about the power and possibilities of technology, the evolution of new devices, platforms and curriculum, and the potential of today’s students to become tomorrow’s leaders.

Education & Beyond

Our Vision is to provide the best ICT services to primary and secondary schools across New Zealand.
