Te Kauhua

The written and video resources you will find on these pages relate to the Te Kauhua initiative.

The Te Kauhua professional learning model is an action research and development initiative. Schools undertake action research projects to strengthen effective links between whānau, families, communities, and schools.

These links maximise teachers’ opportunities to strengthen their practices to support increased academic, social, and cultural outcomes for Māori learners.

Te Kauhua has been in schools since 2001 and is now entering its fourth phase. Phase four of Te Kauhua establishes a number of initiatives to enhance school capability and system understanding of how schools, in collaboration with whānau/hapu and iwi, can develop and implement culturally responsive school and classroom practices.

Each phase of Te Kauhua is based on the evidence and learning from the previous phase. To read about the history of Te Kauhua please visit the Te Tere Auraki site on TKI.
