COVID 19 (novel coronavirus) changes to current delivery

There is a significant amount of work currently being done by our providers to develop online solutions for the continued delivery of Te Ahu o te Reo Māori. We are working towards re-commencing delivery from mid-May. In the meantime we ask for your patience, but rest assured, your participation is valued. Our providers will reconnect with you shortly to continue your te reo Māori journey.

Delivery overview

  • Delivered by Kāuru Education Group based in Ōtaki.
  • Delivers Taumata/Level 1 and Taumata/Level 2 of Ngā Taumata o Te Ahu o te Reo Māori to schools and early learning services from Bulls through to Wellington.
  • Started on March 2 and ends June 21.
  • Queries regarding funding contributions for teacher relief, contact tereo.maorigroup@education.govt.nz

Delivery approach

Kāuru Group will use a mixed mode approach including:

  • Orientation day
  • weekly classes
  • noho wānanga (weekend learning experiences), and
  • self-directed and online learning.

The five strands of Ngā Taumata o Te Ahu o te Reo Māori will be integrated across the learning programme. Tikanga Māori will also be a key element of course delivery.

There will be a strong focus on ‘learning how to learn’ so that the best teaching and learning practices are showcased allowing models of practise from a Māori paradigm to be used in classes.
