Local curriculum design


Local curriculum design is about bringing the aspirations and contributions of your community to learning. Designing a rich local curriculum allows all whānau and mana whenua to make decisions with leaders and teachers about what they want their tamariki and mokopuna to experience.

Local curriculum design and development brings learning to life. It evolves as communities change, and the national curriculum – Te Whāriki, New Zealand Curriculum and Te Marautanga o Aotearoa – evolves. New developments like New Zealand histories need to be considered, as well as other kaupapa, like wellbeing, and integrating mātauranga Māori into the senior secondary curriculum.

Ask a CORE facilitator to work collaboratively with you as you design your local curriculum. Your facilitator will bring expertise, connections, and coherent pathways to your thinking across cultural narratives, curriculum review, curriculum design or specific curriculum areas such as literacy across the curriculum, mathematics or science education.

If you would like a CORE facilitator to collaborate with you on this priority please contact one of our regional PLD managers.
