Phase two

During Phase 2 of the Joint InitiativeNZEI Te Riu Roa members and Ministry of Education staff focused on six core areas to help "shape and stretch" Communities of Learning to ensure they genuinely meet the needs of children.

NZEI's goals were to:

  • grow opportunities for our support staff and early childhood teacher members to be recognised and involved in Communities of Learning,
  • develop understanding about how Maori and Pasifika children's success can be enhanced through Communities of Learning,
  • ensure the alignment of proposed professional learning and development with other changes in the sector, and
  • recognise the importance of inclusive education practices.

The reports of the six workstreams are here:
