Ngā Whanaketanga Rumaki Māori: Kaiako survey

Ngā Whanaketanga Rumaki Māori were developed in 2009 by Māori medium leaders in Te Reo and Pāngarau and launched in Rotorua at Te Kura Kaupapa Māori o Rotoiti in 2010. They describe the kōrero, pānui, tuhituhi and pāngarau skills and knowledge that students need to learn in all learning areas across Te Marautanga o Aotearoa at different points of their years 1 to 8 schooling.

In 2011 Ngā Whanaketanga Rumaki Māori were made available to kura and Māori medium settings who use Te Marautanga o Aotearoa. Professional learning and development (PLD) was provided to kura to support them to improve their understanding and use of Ngā Whanaketanga Rumaki Māori. Not all kura were involved in the PLD.

The Ministry of Education sought the experiences of kaiako in Māori medium settings about Ngā Whanaketanga Rumaki Māori at which point they had been available to kura for almost a year. A survey for kaiako was undertaken in November 2011.

A total number of 102 survey forms were received. Fifty-six were from kaiako involved in PLD and 34 who were not. Twelve kaiako did not specify whether they were involved in PLD. Twenty-six (25%) were completed either fully or partly in te reo Māori and 76 (75%) were completed in English. The original intention was to analyse and report on the data by kaiako who were involved in PLD and kaiako who were not. This was not possible due to the very low response rate. All survey forms have been analysed together.
