How we work with Māori
We use a framework called: He Urunga Tū – An Entrance to Engagement.
Using this framework RTLB may enable ākonga, kaiako and whānau self-determination. RTLB are manuhiri who are invited to facilitate, support and nurture the child through their learning journey. ‘Ahakoa ko wai, ahakoa nō hea - No matter whom they are or where they are from’.
The He Urunga Tū framework enables RTLB to be effective, inclusive, culturally responsive and safe in their practice. It guides and supports RTLB to facilitate the process in a manner that is respectful and professional and maintains positive working relationships.
