Te Tapuae o Rehua Consortium

Te Tapuae Logo_520University of Otago College of Education, is part of a consortium which has been awarded English and Māori Medium Ministry of Education contracts. Te Tapuae o Rehua brings together the consortium of Ngāi Tahu, University of Otago and University of Canterbury.

Education Support Services (ESS) is able to provide support through three different avenues:

  1. The first is through the Ministry of Education contract; Culturally Responsive Professional Learning Development Provision.
  2. The second is PLD by Consultancy where programmes are designed with schools or clusters of schools, or organisations to meet their specific requirements on a cost recovery basis.
  3. The third avenue for PLD is through Ministry funded workshops and our user pays courses (for which there will be a cost).

We look forward to discussing your PLD needs with you.
