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:
