Kāhui Ako / Cluster Personalised Programme – We come to you

Over 2019, we also offered this course directly for Kāhui Ako – personalising both the content and the dates to align with strategic goals. All of the Evaluation Associates’ facilitators are MOE accredited so this highly proven PLD can align with locally-focussed PLD proposals. Through the Kāhui Ako Model, coaching hours were negotiated to best fit the needs of every participant, every school; extending the coaching to work with individuals and leadership teams to best fit.
