Ministry of Education standards for modern learning environments


All Modern Learning Environment (MLE) classroom upgrades must comply with the Designing Quality Learning Spaces (DQLS) standards on internal environment learning spaces design.

Guidelines have been developed by the Building Research Association of New Zealand (BRANZ) for boards of trustees, principals and teachers to help them understand the importance the internal environment plays in the design of quality learning spaces. The guidelines will also help boards to brief consultants and tradespeople on their school’s requirements when planning alterations or maintenance.
