Dual-medium PLD

Grow learning environments where ākonga can be successful as Māori.

Professional learning designed for dual-medium settings

The needs of educators in dual-medium settings are diverse. Kaiako and ākonga navigate the complexity of two world views – te Ao Māori and te Ao Pakeha. Seeking additional support for kaiako in dual-medium settings and the leaders who support them can increase the success of bilingual ākonga and strengthen the rumaki.

What might dual-medium professional learning focus on?

Support your rumaki or Māori-medium unit could include:

  • working alongside kaiārahi and kaiako to identify strengths and areas of required support

  • co-constructing an improvement plan

  • capability improvement

  • partnerships for learning

  • implementing Māori-centric pedagogy

  • evaluative capability focused on progress

  • embedding effective aromatawai, o te ako, mo te ako, knowledge and practice

  • building knowledge of Te Marautanga o Aotearoa, marau-ā-kura and supporting marau resources.
