Professional learning and development

As a national provider of professional learning and development (PLD), funded by the Ministry of Education, we design and deliver PLD that meets the needs of a diverse range of learning communities throughout Aotearoa. 

Our facilitators work across Māori, Pacific, and English medium contexts. At the heart of our mahi is a focus on transforming outcomes for ākonga and whānau.

Priorities for regionally-allocated PLD 2022

Ākonga and learning communities are at the centre of our thinking. This kaupapa shapes how we work with clients across the priorities for 2022.

  • Cultural capability
  • Local curriculum design
  • Assessment for learning
  • Matauranga Māori and Te reo Māori
  • Marau-ā-kura
  • Aromatawai

Digital technology and fluency remains a priority in all settings.

Support could include PLD within or across your learning community, online or face-to-face facilitation, a blend of both, or coaching and mentoring.

To work with a CORE facilitator on any of these priorities please contact one of our regional PLD managers.


An overview about the Ministry priorities

In 2021 we ran a series of webinars for educators giving overviews of selected Ministry of Education national priorities. Watch the series. They're about 1 hour each.

He Ariā Kōkirikiri | CORE's Theory of Action

He Ariā Kōkirikiri informs how we work in the facilitation space, we:

  • listen to deeply understand and get to the heart of the situation
  • use our knowledge and frameworks to design a PLD programme with you
  • work collaboratively to implement innovative and sustainable change and build capability
  • support the regular review and refining of the programme based on feedback and evolving needs
  • work as part of a focused inquiry cycle that leads to transformation.

The mangopare kōwhaiwhai motif is inspired by the twisting, turning movement of the hammerhead shark. It symbolises strength, determination, courage and growth. It shows that our work occurs as part of a cycle that leads to transformation.
