Tapasā - Cultural competencies framework for teachers of Pacific learners

13/9/2018

Tapasā is a resource for all teachers of Pacific learners. It is designed to support teachers to become more culturally aware, confident and competent when engaging with Pacific learners and their parents, families and communities. It aims to contextualise quality teaching and planning within a Pacific learner setting by providing a Pacific lens to the Standards for the Teaching Profession and the Code of Professional Responsibility. 

Tapasā has been designed to help improve the way teachers and leaders engage with Pacific learners, and to an extent parents, families and their communities, to make the biggest difference in a child’s educational success. 

We encourage all schools with Pacific students to use Tapasā as a guide to help improve their way of communication and gain a deeper understanding of howTapasā works and how it applies to the teaching role in supporting Pacific students.

Tapasā will be officially launched by Minister Salesa on Friday 14 September at Otahuhu Primary.
