Productive partnerships

“Increasing whānau and iwi authority and involvement in education is critical to improving presence, engagement, and achievement. To achieve this, parents and whānau must be actively involved in decision-making and their children’s learning in all education settings.”

Ka Hikitia – Managing for Success: The Māori Education Strategy 2008-2012, page 28.

Productive partnerships incorporate Māori students, whānau, and educators sharing knowledge and expertise with each other to produce better outcomes for Māori learners. This principle includes taking a ‘personalised learning’ approach that puts every learner and their achievement at the heart of education and recognises that one size fits one.

The resources you will find on this page reflect these principles of productive partnership and provide examples of this from schools across New Zealand.
