Holistic Teaching and Learning Practices of Pacific PTEs
Le So'otaga or ‘The Bridge’ sought to understand how holistic practices at selected high-performing Pacific private training establishments (PTEs) benefit Pacific learners and support academic achievement.
The term le so’otaga represents a bridge between spaces, and is an appropriate metaphor for describing how PTEs support learners by acting as a bridge between different spaces to achieve positive outcomes for all.
The project identifies a range of holistic Pacific practices that have been shown to benefit learners, as well as summarises success factors for Pacific PTE learners, PTEs, and tutors.
The report was launched at the New Zealand Institute of Sport Graduation in December 2012.
