Documents in this kete provide information and support for developing an understanding of the importance of developing educational partnerships with iwi and hapū.
Kia ora. In this section of the site, you can find practical information and resources to support Māori learners. All the resources are available from the Ministry of Education and New Zealand education sector sites.
We have organised the content collections using a “layers of influence” approach. These “layers of influence” shape the conditions in which Māori learn and can have an impact on learners enjoying and achieving educational success as Māori. The layers are: the Crown, iwi, whānau, school leaders, teachers and students.
Iwi have clear aspirations for their tamariki and mokopuna. Many iwi are developing strategic educational plans or "iwi education plans". These plans describe their vision, actions and processes.
Iwi have clearly articulated that they want to be a part of a working partnership that supports the educational success of their tamariki as Ngā Iwi.
Iwi are self-determining within Aotearoa, each with unique goals and aspirations for their tamariki and mokopuna. This requires schools to move beyond a pan-Māori view towards an iwi and hapū perspective of mana whenua.
This kete emphasises a move towards a relationship and understanding of iwi as mana whenua with whom schools share a responsibility for educational success as Ngā Iwi.
