Te Ara Poutama – Teachers and the Quality Indicators (Online Workshop)

09:30:00 to 11:30:00

Te Ara Poutama – Teachers and the Quality Indicators

Te Ara Poutama, the new way of measuring quality in ECE, has replaced He Pou Tātaki. How does this impact on teachers? This intensive 2-hour online workshop unpacks indicators, explains their purpose, and uses practice examples, helping to make relevant connections. During the workshop, teachers have the opportunity to discuss how their day-to-day work links to the indicators.

This online workshop:

  • explains Ngā Ara Whai Hua, the new quality framework, and
  • unpacks the indicators for the learning conditions, i.e. He Whariki Motuhake and Whakangungu Ngaio
  • gives ECE teachers a very good overview of the intent and the impact of Te Ara Poutama.
