Here at the Institute of Professional Learning: Te Whai Toi Tangata, we have a number of key partners and other service providers in the sector. These are:
Faculty of Education - Te Kura Toi Tangata
The University of Waikato Faculty of Education (FEDU) is committed to building teachers and educational leaders capacity around the world, and looks to work with institutions that share our values and outlook on education.
As the first New Zealand Teachers' College to merge with a University, the Faculty of Education has been a national leader in pre-service and in-service teacher education and educational research for many years. Over this time the Faculty has developed an excellent international reputation built on its experience of undertaking collaborative and innovative research that has not only been strongly integrated into its teaching and professional learning programmes, but that has also had a major impact on educational policy in New Zealand and throughout the region.
The Faculty is committed to research-informed professional learning and is proud to host the IPL. This uniquely positions the Institute to link directly with relevant qualifications for teachers, principals and educators.
Wilf Malcolm Institute of Educational Research
The Wilf Malcolm Institute of Educational Research provides the infrastructure support for research within the Faculty of Education. Much of the research involves teams whose members are drawn from across the Faculty and our external partners.
The Educational Leadership Research Centre
The Educational Leadership Research Centre seeks through its many activities to develop, support and sustain agentic leaders across educational and community contexts nationally and internationally.
Waikato-Tainui College for Research and Development
The College delivers on the vision of the Founding Fellow, the late Sir Robert Mahuta who saw the College as the means by which we will be able to produce a continual stream of leadership to lead Maaori through the next century. It is an international institution attracting scholars and teachers focussed on wide ranging topics of development research not exclusively restricted to Waikato-Tainui. It is development at all levels and in all disciplines. It will be a centre of excellence benefiting not only Waikato-Tainui but also the local, national and international communities.
