Te Akatea NZ Māori Principals Association are proud to advise all three Ann Milne Online courses will now be eligible for MOE centrally-funded PLD hours! This is due to an agreement between Te Akatea, adding Ann Milne as an induction facilitator to our existing accreditation, with Ministry of Education approval.

Participation can be funded through your region’s Professional Learning and Development allocation of hours. Principals and/or Kāhui Ako Lead Principals will be able to apply for:

  • 7 MOE PLD hours per participant to cover any one course (approx. 50 hrs PLD)
  • 21 MOE PLD hours per participant to cover the series of 3 courses (approx. 150 hrs PLD)

National PLD Priorities

  • Cultural Capability
  • Local Curriculum Design
  • Assessment for Learning
  • Digital Fluency

Mātāpono / Principles

Facilitators and school leaders are expected to support capability building across the four priorities through approaches that are underpinned by a deep understanding of the four principles of Te Tiriti o Waitangi, Kaupapa Māori, inclusion, and critical consciousness.

The mātāpono cut across all priorities work on the ‘power dynamics’ and ‘mental models’ that are the largest of the barriers to system change for equitable outcomes.

MOE applications for PLD to begin in Term 1 2021 CLOSE ON 9 OCTOBER 2020

The Ministry of Education has outlined new PLD priorities that reflect its vision for a more inclusive, equitable, connected and future-focused learning system in New Zealand.
