2020 Strengthening Local Curriculum Community of Practice

Who is the community of practice for?

Schools (Year 1-8) who are developing their local curriculum and looking for support to ensure that they have brought the New Zealand curriculum to life in their school.

Our aim is to support schools to:

  • consider place-based curriculum design ideas with authentic mana whenua perspectives 
  • create links to mana whenua that are current, active and effective  
  • explore resources and tools, including those created by local hapū and iwi, to support your local curriculum design
  • access expertise and examples
  • connect and collaborate with others
  • give participants time in their teams where they can design and develop their local curriculum

Facilitator support:
