Local curriculum design

Bringing to life the aspirations of communities

Unique community needs

It is responsive to your learners, and the aspirations of whānau and your community to recognise their individual needs. Depending on your setting it brings to life the intent of the national curricula – Te Whāriki, The New Zealand Curriculum, and Te Marautanga o Aotearoa.


Enquire about support with designing your curriculum


A localised curriculum reflects community values, culture and identity, and creates rich learning opportunities. It is often developed in partnership with parents, caregivers, whānau, local iwi, hapū and other organisations. At the heart of a local curriculum is the focus on what improves learning for the ākonga in your context.

A national PLD priority, support to strengthen your local curriculum can be part of regionally-allocated PLD.

With knowledge and understanding of local curriculum design, Tātai Aho Rau Core Education professionals can support you to:

  • design learning experiences that empower ākonga
  • customise solutions to support your learning priorities and goals
  • weave the national curriculum framework into your context
  • enact the vision of your community
  • develop rich opportunities and coherent pathways for all ākonga.
