Cultural capability

Cultural capability is one of the national priorities that underpin regionally-allocated PLD.

All learners are culturally located – CORE recognises the foundation of successful relationships is being culturally responsive. We work with you, exploring what it means to be culturally responsive and how to build it into your foundations.

Understanding Te Tiriti o Waitangi and New Zealand history, and using Te Reo Māori helps with developing culturally responsive pedagogy.
