"BestStart is committed to supporting our teachers' growth and development. As part of our teacher's professional responsibility, they need to gather evidence of how their work links to the New Zealand Code of Professional Responsibility and Standards for the Teaching Profession.

I LOVE the Storypark tools, as do my team, as it gives us the ability to drive and capture continuous improvement.  We can see and capture the impact this has for outcomes for children and the growth of individual teachers. We work in a role that continually evaluates our impact so we need to look to where the evidence sits. It's so much more accessible now. I can review so much more documentation remotely and that can save hours of travel time which has been so valuable in Covid lockdowns."
