Quality Learning Changes Lives

Te Whai Toi Tangata Institute of Professional Learning at the University of Waikato, builds on a long history of providing high quality professional learning opportunities across and beyond the education sector in New Zealand. We work with educational leaders/tumuaki, teachers/kaiako and Kāhui Ako.

Our facilitators cover a wide range of areas of expertise enabling us to weave together a cohesive, responsive plan for your educators and learners/ākonga.

We offer a comprehensive schedule of professional learning workshops throughout the country.

Our organisation is led by Te Tiriti o Waitangi and is based on a set of beliefs that underpin the work that we do.

  • We believe in deep connections with people and place
  • We believe diversity enriches us all
  • We believe equitable education is the key to wellbeing and social justice
  • We believe innovation requires courage and integrity

Education Transforms Futures / Kia toitū te mātauranga

A diverse range of professional learning opportunities are available for educators who want to make a difference; who want to grow their knowledge and practice; who are interested in enhancing their own education. We work alongside teachers and leaders in your place to develop your professional learning journey; either through MoE regionally allocated or self-funded PLD.
