What is Drawing the Future?

Drawing the Future is a national survey from the Tertiary Education Commission (TEC) that asked students in Years 3 to 8 to draw what they think they’d like to do when they grow up.

Every Primary and Intermediate school was sent a Drawing the Future pack in October 2019. Each pack contained 30 drawing templates and a self-addressed, prepaid envelope.

If you have any questions about Drawing the Future, please email us at customerservice@tec.govt.nz or phone 0800 601 301.

Thank you again for your support and your participation.
