Inclusive Practice and the School Curriculum is an online resource for teachers and leaders in New Zealand English-medium school settings.
It has been developed to build professional knowledge and create a shared understanding of inclusive practice within the New Zealand Curriculum.
It is anticipated that providers of PLD will draw on the resource as they work in and with schools to develop effective and inclusive teaching and learning programmes.

The Ministry’s Student Information Sharing Initiative (SISI) is working with the sector to resolve the challenge of easily accessing and sharing information that schools, students, and caregivers need.
Following sector feedback requesting professional learning support on the use of student management systems (SMS), the Connected Learning Advisory—Te Ara Whītiki is running a series of half-day workshops throughout Term 2 on behalf of the Ministry of Education.
These workshops are free of charge and are being held in 30 regional locations. These workshops will be useful to senior leaders in all schools and kura, regardless of the SMS you use.
You can register here for a workshop in your area.
