Te Hurihanganui is a kaupapa that will address racism, strengthen equity and accelerate the educational achievement and wellbeing of ākonga Māori and their whānau in the education system. The kaupapa is being tested over three years across six communities (this includes ākonga, whānau, hapū, iwi and clusters of schools and early learning services.
A Work Team, consisting of Ministry members, a Work Team Partner, and occasionally other consultants and community members, will be tasked with supporting Te Hurihanganui’s implementation across the six communities.
We require a Work Team Partner for up to three years. The Work Team Partner will work closely with the Ministry and support communities to:
• build and sustain authentic reciprocal relationships across the community;
• understand, collate and analyse baseline community data and context in relation to racism, equity and wellbeing;
• build community capability and capacity around critical consciousness, kaupapa Māori and good practice for ākonga Māori and their whānau in education; and
• develop, iterate and implement community action plans that give effect to their community aspirations for Te Hurihanganui.
Realising the aspirations of Te Hurihanganui will require transformative changes at both a cultural and structural level. This involves:
• A cultural shift, that is, a kaupapa Māori relational approach that indigenises the education system; and
• A structural shift that is grounded in critical consciousness that decolonises the education system.
We need a Work Team Partner that has experience supporting cultural and structural shift across communities and the education sector as described above. The Work Team Partner will also have a suite of products and services that can support Te Hurihanganui communities and systemic change in a timely way.
