Home Learning TV | Papa Kāinga TV is back


Home Learning TV | Papa Kāinga TV is back to support learning for children aged 2 to 11 years while Auckland remains in Alert Level 3 and the rest of the country is in Alert Level 2. 

This time around, Home Learning TV | Papa Kāinga TV will take over TVNZ DUKE's daytime schedule from 9am to 1pm on week days. DUKE is available on Freeview channel 13, Sky and Vodafone TV channel 23. 

Watch live on your TV, or live stream DUKE on the TVNZ website. Content will be available for catch up viewing on TVNZ OnDemand, where you can also catch all the earlier episodes of Home Learning TV | Papa Kāinga TV.

Replacement of Te Kete Ipurangi


Teachers and leaders from early learning to senior secondary have told us that they want easy to find, quality online curriculum resources to better support them to do their work.

The Ministry of Education has released a Request for Proposal to build a new online curriculum hub via the Government Electronic Tender Service on Monday 10 August 2020. The tender closes on Friday 11 September 2020. We expect that work will get started early in 2021 and take several years to complete.

The technology build will provide the place where teachers and leaders with students and their whānau can find quality assured curriculum teaching resources that they can edit and personalise to meet their specific needs. The design of the new technology will help everyone make sense of the curriculum, what’s important to learn, and how to teach it.

It will complement Kauwhata Reo, the platform which supports learning in and through te reo Māori, which was launched in 2019.

The current step follows the initial platform Request for Information released in March 2020. We expect the first release of the technology build will be ready to begin content loading from mid to late 2021.

In the meantime, we’ll be working with potential users to make sure that our online curriculum resources are relevant and useful. We will provide updates here as the work develops.

Action Plan for Pacific Education 2020-2030


The Action Plan for Pacific Education 2020-2030 maps the Government’s commitment to transforming outcomes for Pacific learners and families and signals how early learning services, schools, and tertiary providers can achieve change for Pacific learners and their families.

The vision for this Action Plan is ‘diverse Pacific learners and families are safe, valued and equipped to achieve their education aspirations’.

The plan was developed following a series of fono across New Zealand with Pacific learners, families, and communities.

It sets out five key shifts that have been prioritised by Pacific communities, and a series of associated actions as the first step to achieving this vision. 

The Action Plan has resources and guidance for early learning services, schools, tertiary providers, and families and communities, including planning templates.

Go to the links on this page of the Kōrero Mātauranga website to read the action plan in English and 10 Pacific languages.

Ka Hikitia – Ka Hāpaitia | The Māori Education Strategy has been refreshed


Ka Hikitia - Ka Hāpaitia, the Māori Education Strategy, has been refreshed as part of the Education Work Programme.

Ka Hikitia is a cross-agency strategy for the education sector that sets out how the Ministry of Education will work with education services to achieve system shifts in education and support Māori learners and their whānau, hapū and iwi to achieve excellent and equitable outcomes.

It provides an organising framework for the actions the Ministry will take.

The framework has five outcome domains that reflect key messages the Ministry has heard from whānau, hapū, Iwi, and Māori over an extended period of time, and the Ministry's evidence base about what works for Māori learners and their whānau. 

The refreshed strategy can be read in English and te reo Māori, and can be downloaded as a visual A3 [PDF, 793 KB]

Ka Hikitia and Tau Mai Te Reo are companion strategies and should be read in conjunction with each other.

Ka Hikitia is a strategy for all Māori learners, while Tau Mai Te Reo is a strategy for all learners.

Tau Mai Te Reo | The Māori Language in Education Strategy has been refreshed


Tau Mai Te Reo, the Māori Language in Education Strategy for all learners, has been refreshed as part of the Education Work Programme.

Tau Mai Te Reo is a cross-agency strategy for the education sector that sets out the goals the Ministry of Education is seeking to achieve, and provides a framework for coordinating programmes and services that support Māori language in education. 

It builds on the previous Tau Mai Te Reo, published in 2013. 

The strategy aims to provide breadth and depth of Māori language in education. 

All learners will be able to develop some level of Māori language skills to support our national identity, while learners in Māori Medium education will be able to develop very high levels of Māori language proficiency and use as they undertake their teaching and learning through te reo Māori. 

The refreshed strategy can be read in English, and te reo Māori, and can be downloaded as a visual A3 [PDF, 677 KB] 

Tau Mai Te Reo and Ka Hikitia are companion strategies and should be read in conjunction with each other.

Tau Mai Te Reo is a strategy for all learners, while Ka Hikitia is a strategy for all Māori learners.
