Director's welcome

E aku nui, e aku rahi

Tēnei te mihi maioha ki a koutou i runga anō i ngā tini āhuatanga o te wā

I am pleased to introduce Te Whai Toi Tangata: the Institute of Professional Learning (IPL). The IPL is part of the Faculty of Education at the University of Waikato. We work in New Zealand schools, Kura and Kāhui Ako and internationally to support school leaders, learners and communities to achieve their goals. Our team of English and Māori medium accredited facilitators and Expert Partners are available to work with you at your place and at your pace.

The Institute, through culturally responsive practice, challenges individuals and organisations to achieve the moral purpose of ensuring that all people attain success. We facilitate professional learning relationships that develop collective capacity for a shared vision of transformation and innovation.

We pride ourselves on supporting professional practice that makes a positive difference with individuals, organisations and society, creates and sustains social and economic wellbeing, and positions New Zealand as a global leader in innovation and change.
We hope you find the information about our key areas of work useful, particularly in showing the various ways in which we can support you in your on-going professional learning environment.

Noho ora mai,
Kathryn Hodson,
DIRECTOR
