TE ARA HOU – THE MĀORI ACHIEVEMENT COLLABORATIVE (MACS)

2017 Wānanga Papakura Marae 25-27 October.

A collaboration between Te Akatea Māori Principals’ Association, the New Zealand Principals’ Federation and the Ministry of Education. The Māori achievement collaboratives (MACS) is a professional learning and development pathway BY principals FOR principals focussed on changing education outcomes for Māori students. In all: “Leaders helping leaders to become better leaders!” The underlying premise of this learning and development programme is that ‘Schools won't change unless the principal does.’ To this end the focus of the programme is on ‘Changing the hearts and minds of principals’ through a process of deep learning, mentoring, coaching, critical consciencisation and collaboration. In this way the belief is that change will become sustainable and enduring and will impact on all members of a school community, staff, students, parents and whānau.
