About the pathway modules

We are proud to launch a set of online Pacific Cultural Centeredness Pathway modules aimed at Foundation-level educators or anyone interested in improving Pacific learner success.

The Pacific Cultural Centeredness Pathway offers a great springboard to gaining the cultural knowledge that can make all the difference for how you relate to and support your Pacific learners. Connecting to your students on a cultural level can lead to stronger relationships, improved engagement, increased pass rates and ultimately, better learning outcomes for them.

Topics covered

Seven interactive modules included in this cultural pathway are based on different Pacific nations: Samoa, Fiji, Cook Islands, Niue, Tokelau, Tonga and Tuvalu.

Each module focuses on:

  • The core values held by each Pacific nation.
  • Participation in activities and reflection to help embed the values in your knowledge bank.
  • Gaining practical tools to help you implement the values when engaging with Pacific learners.
