Ngā mihi mahana ki a koutou,

I have two front of mind items for you – you can now employ ex-teachers on a LAT, and the ongoing Rauhuia: Terenga Huihuinga | Symposia Series that continues (click here to enrol) today at 4:00pm.

I would like to thank all of you who attended the first of the Rauhuia | Leadership: Terenga Huihuinga | Symposia Series last month. It was great to see so many of you there asking questions to our presenters. We have more symposia coming in the new year so keep an eye on your inbox, or our website, for information and invites.

I truly hope the remainder of the year goes smoothly for everyone, and to our kaiako and ākonga in the midst of NCEA examinations right now, I wish you all the best.

Noho ora mai,
Lesley Hoskin
Tāhuhu Rangapū | Chief Executive

Temporary changes to LAT requirements: ex-teachers can now be employed

The Teaching Council recently sought the views of relevant peak bodies and tumuaki | principals on a temporary policy change for issuing of LATs. 

Our proposal was to allow currently or previously registered kaiako | teachers without a practising certificate who are not intending on returning to teaching, to be issued with a LAT. The temporary policy change was proposed to assist with current kaiako | teacher supply issues affecting many kura | schools across the country.

E mōhio nā koutou, nōnātata nei i tō mātou Terenga Hui Rauhuia ka tīmata ngā whakawhiti kōrero me te hunga ngaio e pā ana ki te mahi arataki, tae rawa ki te tirotiro i ngā mahi arataki i Rauhuia mā te tirohanga Tiriti o Waitangi. Ka aro atu te huinga tuatahi ki tēnei mea te Mana, e ai rā ki te tirohanga ahurea toiora. Ko tōna ngako kia whai whakaaro ngā kaiako he kaiarataki rātou i roto i ō rātou nei hapori.

Tēnā koutou i waitohu mai, ā, i tae mai ki ngā huinga e rua o Rauhuia, otirā ka mihi anō mō ngā urupare papai i tukuna mai. He hīkaka tonu te hunga i tae mai ki te huinga tuatahi, kia whai pārongo anō mō te hōtaka o Te Ahu o te Reo i kōrerotia ake rā e Pānia. Ko te whāinga o Te Ahu o te Reo hei tautoko i ngā kaiarataki, ngā kaiako me ngā hunga taunaki, atu i te taumata kōhungahunga ki te kura tuarua, otirā kia tipu te āheinga me te mana whakahī a ngā ākonga ki te whakamahi i te reo Māori. Kei raro iho nei te hononga ipurangi a te tīma o Kauwhata Reo hei tuari atu ki te mahi ngaio. He āwhina pea ēnei māu i a koe e ako ana i te reo Māori hei te tau 2023, atu ki te ākeāke.

As many of you are aware, through our Rauhuia Symposia, we have recently started conversations with the profession about leadership, in particular, exploring Rauhuia | Leadership through a Te Tiriti o Waitangi lens. Our first symposia are focused on understanding mana from a cultural well-being perspective to ensure teachers can see themselves as leaders within and for the communities they serve.

Thank you to all those who signed up and attended our first two Rauhuia symposia and for the overwhelmingly positive feedback we have had to date. Those in attendance at the first symposium were keen to have further information about the Te Ahu o te Reo programme that Pānia discussed in her session. Te Ahu o te Reo aims to support early learning to secondary school leaders, kaiako, and support staff to build their capability and confidence in using and integrating te reo Māori into the learning of all ākonga. The Kauwhata Reo team have provided a link to share with the profession. This may support you as you plan for your te reo Māori journey into 2023 and beyond.

Rauhuia | Leadership space: creating a measurement framework  - we need your help!

Rauhuia symbolises the uniquely Aotearoa-based leadership that we aspire to; honouring Te Tiriti o Waitangi and te ao Māori-based concepts of leadership that seek to empower people to lead for a different future that focuses on educational equity.  
We see all members of the profession as leaders and through Rauhuia, we aim to encourage all members to realise their own leadership capabilities.

Many of you contributed your time and knowledge into the development of Rauhuia and Rautaki Kaihautū | Leadership Strategy and we thank you for this. 

We want everyone to see the value of this work and are therefore currently working on the development of a learning and measurement framework for Rauhuia.

The purpose of this framework is not to evaluate teachers but to articulate what success of Rauhuia would look like. Also, it is to define what we can measure along the way and demonstrate our progress and the collective impact of the mahi in the area of educational leadership development. 

To develop the framework, we will be running workshops with the profession and key stakeholders.

We’d love for you to be involved in developing the learning and measurement framework for Rauhuia.

If you would like to participate in a workshop in the future, please email to
