Support for PRT/OTTs and Mentors

Mau ki te Ako LogoTe Tapuae o Rehua (a partnership of Ngai Tahu, the University of Otago and the University of Canterbury) is offering Ministry of Education funded support to all PRT and OTT's (with provisional registration) and Mentors (tutor teachers, PRT Coordinators, SCTs and HODs) in English Medium Schools, Years 1-13, throughout Aotearoa/New Zealand.

Key components of our PLD are:

  • Quality Induction and Mentoring (I & M) programmes that lead to full registration for PRTs
  • NZC – effective pedagogy - Teaching as Inquiry, National Standards (1-8) / Literacy & numeracy requirements for NCEA (9-13) & the MoE priority learner groups. What do they mean for your teaching practice?
  • Culturally responsive pedagogy – theory into practice
  • Sharing resources and building networks with other PRT/OTTs & mentors

There are four types of support available
