The story of The Mind Lab is a story of recognising and embracing change in the world and providing innovative education that reflects that change.
Founded by Frances Valintine in 2013, we started by addressing the imbalance of what kiwi kids were learning compared with the future of work they were going to be faced with. This quickly led to raising the digital skills and capabilities of teachers, and now our suite of programmes is rapidly expanding across Aotearoa as we seek to build capability to make sure no one gets left behind.
All of our programmes, teaching and learnings are grounded in kaupapa Māori values. We’re focused on making what we teach accessible and valuable for all learners, as value and outcomes for learners are at the heart of what we do. In a world where the greatest certainty is change, lifelong learning is key; which is why learning needs to be accessible, inspiring, fun, practical, and a journey of endless exploration and positive change.
The Mind Lab – creating impactful futures.
