A collaborative project that will result in the delivery of a professional development programme to provide enhanced support for educators working with Māori and Pasifika learners in adult literacy and numeracy.
This collaborative project between Victoria University of Wellington and WelTec aims to assist tutors at New Zealand polytechnics to meet the literacy needs of all students, and in particular, Pasifika students.
This project seeks to identify the pedagogical success factors that make a difference for Pacific learners, and to then support and mentor colleagues to test the identified pedagogical approaches into their own programmes.
This collaborative project will identify critical success factors and effective models for Pasifika learners, including those generally applicable to industry training, and specific to the training models of ITOs. The project is designed to develop industry tailored toolkits on implementing and evaluating success strategies for supporting Pacific learners in industry training.
