The Ministry seeks proposals for the delivery of the Tapasā cultural competencies framework from a suitably qualified Provider. This national professional learning development (PLD) initiative will be delivered by facilitators with the right capabilities to work with teachers and leaders in early learning and schools in Aotearoa with high volumes of Pacific learners. PLD will be offered where there is an identified need. This service will run for up to three calendar years from 2022 - 2024.
This opportunity aligns with the national PLD priorities which aim to shift behaviours, confront systemic racism and discrimination in education. Following the Education Conversation | Korero Mātauranga in 2018, the PLD Priorities were reset to support teachers and kaiako and to provide more responsive and rich learning experiences for all ākonga and students. Aligned with the refresh of the national curriculum, this initiative will promote an inclusive curriculum experience for Pacific learners. The sector told us that it was important to value identity, language, and culture above all.
