E ngā mana, e ngā reo, tēnā koutou katoa.

Tēnei te mihi atu ki a koutou i tēnei wāhanga o te tau. Otirā ka hoki ngā mahara ki a rātou kua wehe atu ki te pō, te pō roa, te pō nui, te pō kerekere. Nō reira e te hunga kua wehe ki tua o Paerau, moe atu. Waihoa rātou ki a rātou, tātou ki a tātou. E te rangatira e te Tumuaki Tēnā koe, he mihi tēnei ki a koe.

UniServices in partnership with the University of Auckland Faculty of Education are working with the Ministry of Education to better understand the role of curriculum leadership in Māori medium settings.

This Research Case Study is being managed by Future Learning Solutions - Te Whānau Maioha, (Centre for Māori Education), and Te Puna Wānanga.

The Ministry are particularly interested in networks and how kaiako learn from each other, how these work best to progress curriculum teaching and learning and what the critical factors are when leading networks/teams. 

This part of the Leadership and Curriculum Teams project involves three phases as per the following timeline

Term 4 2019

Diagnostic Phase

This focuses on establishing information about the current needs and priorities of your current situation before intervening.

It will begin with an information Hui with Kura. 

From Term 1 to Term 3 2020

Intervention Phase

This phase allows for support to be tailored to meet actual strengths and needs of your kaiako within their curriculum teams.

This will be based on the tool Tū Rangatira: Māori Medium Educational Leadership, where we are aiming to measure where each kaiako is placed in a differentiated scale in the Leadership Capability Framework.

We will also begin to collect survey data for the next phase.

Term 4 2020


One of the outcomes of this project is that the Ministry wants to better understand how teachers learn to become curriculum leaders.

This will require school leadership and teachers consenting to carrying out a survey, and interviews with school leaders.

The results will be collated and analysed by Tony Trinick and a report prepared for the MOE and for participating schools.

Participants and their data will remain anonymous.

Complete report on teachers’ learning to be curriculum leaders.
