This has been a long time coming… However, I’m very pleased to share the new Tapatoru framework with you.
I’ve been working on this for the Tertiary Education Commission and Ako Aotearoa since August 2018.
This framework is for you if you work with learners, workers or clients who need culturally relevant language, literacy and numeracy support.
The official release was today at the Foundation and Bridging Educators (FABENZ) Conference in Wellington.
There are a couple of supporting documents. You can download them below or on the Ako Aotearoa Website.
- Foundation-Learning-Professional-Standards-Framework-Tapatoru – Foundation Learning Professional Standards Framework (Full Report).
If you’re reading this and you’re not from New Zealand, please ask me questions if you’re interested.
I think there is a wider applicability, especially to other indigenous groups interested in integrating cultural values together with knowledge and practice.
Indigenous Taiwanese whanau I’m looking at you in particular…!
