Ako Panuku

Ako Panuku (Inspiring Learning) aims to reduce the impact of workload stress by providing culturally-relevant support.

The programme, designed to acknowledge the critical contribution Māori teachers make to education and the achievement of Māori students, is a Ministry of Education-sponsored initiative created in response to a Ministerial Review which found that Māori secondary teachers often take on responsibilities (beyond their teaching roles) that lead to additional workload stress. 

Since 2019, Ako Panuku has also been made available to Māori teachers in primary schools.

The site offers the following services and support (listed by category).

  • NCEA Support
  • Huiata | Webinars
  • Rauemi | Resources
  • Pae Ako | Courses
  • Kāhui | Communities 
  • He Pūkōrero te Pūrākau – designed to support kaiako in teaching literacy and oral language through the context of "pūrākau".

In addition, as a member of Ako Panuku, you have access to hui where guest speakers share their knowledge and expertise.
