Tertiary provider 'revolutionary change' for top of the South
Nelson Marlborough Institute of Technology (NMIT) has been chosen as one of 13 providers to deliver a programme aimed at normalising te reo Māori in the education sector.
The $108 million government Te Ahu o Te Reo Māori programme, launched at the end of 2020, is designed to upskill 40,000 teachers and school staff, from early learning to secondary schools, in the language and culture.
The programme is being rolled out nationwide after a pilot in four regions. NMIT said it would provide the programme for staff to learn te reo Māori in English medium and Māori pathways with partnership across the iwi of Te Tauihu-o-te-Waka-a-Māui.
