Te Ahu o Te Reo Māori FAQ
Who will be delivering in my region?
We have partnered with 13 te reo Māori providers who are knowledgeable in language learning and teaching, are proficient in reo ā iwi (local dialects) and are dedicated to the revitalisation of our indigenous language. Each will have their own delivery methods and timelines.
What will delivery look like?
Delivery will be undertaken in a variety of ways including, but not limited to, weekly classes, on-line lessons, tutorials and noho marae (overnight stay/ learning experiences). To support you to feel comfortable and confident to use what you have learnt in your classrooms, you will have the option to participate in an 8-week post-delivery course to help embed and enhance teaching and learning activities.
What are the costs?
There are no attendance or registration fees and all learning materials will be provided.
How do I receive the participant support funding?
Participant support funding is offered to early learning, kōhanga reo, puna reo, schools, kura, secondary schools and wharekura to help support their employees and support personnel to participate in Te Ahu o te Reo Māori classes in their region.
- All participants who have successfully registered and are still in the programme at the halfway point of the course qualify for the support funding.
- $500.00 per participant will be paid directly to early learning, kōhanga reo, puna reo, schools, kura, secondary schools and wharekura from the Ministry of Education.
- It is left to the discretion of the early learning, kōhanga reo, puna reo, schools, kura, secondary schools and wharekura to determine how the funding will be used and whether the funding will be given to the participant or used towards costs that may have occurred during the programme.
