About the series

The Māori Cultural Capability Pathway supports practitioners and educators to engage and deliver high-quality teaching and learning that is more culturally-appropriate for Māori students.

There are four value pathways; each is a separate course of work containing kōwae/modules of work for you to complete.

Who are these courses for?

The four courses are designed for practitioners and educators with minimal knowledge of these concepts in a tertiary teaching/learning context. Some basic understanding of te reo Māori would be an advantage.
