The Ministry of Education is seeking to appoint an organisation who has researched and can supply professional support and coordination across Aotearoa New Zealand, to teach foundational literacy based on current international research and best practice by equipping teachers to explicitly teach phonological awareness and support learners to transfer this to reading and writing. This will be incorporated into teachers’ current methods of teaching literacy. The system will have been trialled and evaluated in New Zealand and demonstrate that it works for a diverse range of learners.

This will involve training for:
a. School sector literacy specialists to enhance the support they provide for teachers and learners. Literacy specialists include, but are not limited to, Resource Teachers: Literacy, Resource Teachers: Literacy Māori, Resource Teachers: Learning and Behaviour, Learning and Support Co-ordinators, Kāhui Ako literacy leads.
b. Teachers of foundational literacy New Entrants and Years 1 to 3.

The aim is to increase expertise in teaching phonic based literacy teaching and learning across the sector with literacy specialists providing support for teachers to make sustained changes in teaching practice and for schools to make system level changes to teaching literacy. This will reduce the sector’s reliance on external experts.
