Innovative Teaching and Learning

The New Zealand Curriculum

The New Zealand Curriculum’s vision is that all young people are “confident, connected, actively involved life-long learners”. So what does that look like in your school?  Is your local curriculum responsive, inclusive, personalised, relevant and reflective of the current school culture and context?

  • We can help you strengthen your evaluative capacity to deepen the focus on what matters most to improve learner outcomes.
  • We can support the leadership and teaching teams to understand and maintain learning inquiries and those that will accelerate the progress of students at risk of underachievement.
  • We can assist you to respond to external review recommendations.
  • We can help you do better to impact on school improvement.
  • Ko te Tamaiti te Putake o te Kaupapa -  The child - the heart of the matter

Financial Capability

Financial capability education is connected with entrepreneurship and learners’ future economic contribution. Successful financial capability practices in New Zealand schools require; authentic learning opportunities in contexts of interest to students, connectivity with financial community at local and regional levels - teacher capability and school leadership are critical for effectiveness (ERO, 2011).

  • We can support teachers to develop innovative and authentic contexts for the integration of financial capability into teaching and learning.
  • We can facilitate teachers to have improved capability and direct access to resources to enable them to facilitate financial capability with their learners.
