Te Hāpai Ō – Induction and mentoring in Māori-medium settings
Te Hāpai Ō – Ko te Whakangungu me te Arataki i ngā wāhi Mātauranga Māori / Induction and Mentoring in Māori-medium Settings, provides a model of support for provisionally registered teachers in kura, wharekura and other Māori-medium settings.
A series of wananga (workshops) were held around the country in late 2012 and early 2013, for teachers in Māori-medium settings to discuss their induction and mentoring programmes.
Te Hāpai Ō was developed by Te Whare Wānanga o Awanuiārangi as part of the New Zealand Teachers Council's Induction and Mentoring Pilot Programme. The resource provides practical tools for implementing an induction and mentoring programme based on a kaupapa Māori philosophy.
