Expert Partners for CoL | Kāhui Ako

Ngā mihi matakuikui ki a koutou katoa

At the University of Waikato, we have a dedicated team of expert partners ready to work with leaders of Communities of Learning | Kāhui Ako as you build collaborative practices and take action to meet your achievement challenges.

Expert partners will support leaders as critical friends to strengthen:

  • evidence-gathering practices
  • critical data analysis skills
  • problem definition
  • evidence-informed action planning.

Expert partners will also help Kāhui Ako to develop robust and quality achievement challenges and the associated plans that will accelerate student achievement. In order to strive for collective impact across schools, kura and CoL, our academic and expert practitioners will assist leaders to understand the need for and ways to create a single, shared vision/whāriki and spread it widely.

In our approach we liken the role of the expert partner to that of a weaver or kairaranga. Together with you, we will weave current research, theory and practice into English and Māori medium schooling in a seamless and integrated way.

To talk more about how we can assist and work alongside you and your Kāhui Ako, please contact Michelle Te Amo or call on 07 838 4458.
