The Ministry is seeking proposals to deliver a Professional Learning Development (PLD) initiative that brings the Tapasā cultural competencies framework to life at school, within our communities and our families. This initiative requires highly proficient, culturally capable providers / staff that are experienced in working with teachers and leaders across early learning and in schools with high volumes of children and learners that identify as Pacific.
In 2023, the Ministry would like to procure one or more PLD providers to deliver Tapasā PLD regionally. The Ministry seeks proposals from one or more new suppliers that will be ready to deliver regionally across Aotearoa New Zealand, in early learning and schools, in May 2023 but no later than Term 3 of the school year. This RFP is open to educators, places of learning, community groups, providers, researchers and academics in Aotearoa New Zealand.
Regionally-based PLD Provider(s) need to supply staff to deliver the defined Tapasā cultural competencies through a PLD methodology, to teachers and leaders in early learning and schools in Aotearoa with high volumes of Pacific learners.
We need a Provider(s) with the ability to support this workforce; who will actively recruit and employ staff with the right capabilities; to apply our needs analysis of early learning and schools in Aotearoa that contain high volumes of Pacific learners; which will ideally identify, prioritise and offer Tapasā cultural competencies PLD to these teachers and leaders.
