Te Mātaiaho: The Refreshed New Zealand Curriculum
Our kaiwhakaruruhau/facilitators provides expert support and guidance to help your school context unpack and implement Te Mātaiaho.
Māori Education and Support
Te Mātaiaho, the refreshed framework for the New Zealand Curriculum, is a curriculum designed for all ākonga, to ensure their sense of belonging and ability to flourish through high-quality learning experiences.
About the course
Te Mātaiaho is still in draft form, and the Ministry has approved usage of regionally-allocated PLD hours for facilitators to begin supporting kura/schools in unpacking the document and the larger critical work of kaupapa Māori frameworks and Treaty partnership.
The refreshed curriculum aims to give effect to Te Tiriti and its principles, creating an inclusive learning platform for all ākonga to participate in and enjoy an education that extends every learner’s open-ended potential, produces success in multiple forms, and enables the fulfilment of lifelong ambitions and dreams. Knowing who we are, where we come from, and what makes us unique as a country will enable a more confident international outlook that extends within and beyond our Pacific locality to the global opportunities offered across the world.
There are three critical aspects to the support we will provide to help your school context unpack and implement Te Mātaiaho:
- Looking at how Te Tiriti is enacted in your school setting.
- Providing expertise and knowledge of Mātauranga Māori (Māori ways of being, knowledge, and values).
- Enhance understanding of Kaupapa Māori frameworks and how this can be reflected in your school environment.
