Regionally allocated PLD funding
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.
Teacher wellbeing builds collective resilience
The culture at Waitati Primary School (Dunedin) has been transformed since teachers participated in a wellbeing programme from Tātai Aho Rau, in partnership with the New Zealand Institute of Wellbeing and Resilience (NZIWR).
Find out how they transformed.
Building literacy ...outside of the box
Data shows that children today are different to 10 years ago and we need to change our practice and adapt. Taking a different approach, we explore how we need to challenge ourselves to change our practices and not put kids in a box anymore.
Dive in and explore our findings with this case study from Winton school.
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 | Tātai Aho Rau Core Education'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.

Tātai Aho Rau's facilitators see the PLD priorities as strongly intertwined. Viewed together, the priorities tell a story of strengthened capabilities and the potential to enable change.
Having a large multidisciplinary team allows us to pull the right people together to deliver personalised learning responses that work for your setting.
