How to register

The registration process

Any tertiary organisation can register for Tapatoru through a monthly subscription. Subscription is $275 + GST per month for a group of up to 20 staff.

The subscription includes:

  • the support provided by our facilitators
  • free fortnightly Tapatoru webinars for registered participants
  • one free Manako course or workshop per year for each registered participant
  • coaching and mentoring of a team of in-house trainers within your organisation
  • the awarding of the Tapatoru Ako Professional Practice Individual Awards to qualifying participants.

Check out our Tapatoru flowchart to learn more about the process.

Facilitated reflective process

Once you have registered, our facilitators will support your staff through the reflective process. They will help staff to design their personal professional learning and development pathway, and prepare the portfolio of evidence, which is needed to achieve the award.

Free content and resources are available on the Tapatoru Educator Pathway. This can help your staff prepare for the facilitated Tapatoru process, which is needed to apply for the award.
