Tapuika Group Vacancies

Pouhono Ako (Educational Partnerships and Projects Coordinator)

During 2021 alongside the local Kahui Ako and with the support of MOE, Tapuika developed a curriculum framework for use with Tapuika tamariki wherever their place of learning, and also a level for use within local schools for the general student population.  This was signed off in principle, subject to further refinement and engagement with Whānau / iwi at our recent AGM. 

The first major deliverable associated with this role is to take this framework and alongside our soon to be established Education & cultural Advisory Committee do some further engagement to determine what resources to develop, what to share for use in schools and what to leave as strictly Tapuika only.  We have already identified a digital delivery platform and this needs to be developed alongside written resources.  The role will also manage our scholarship programme, any Te Reo Revitalization projects and other education & training related  projects that may come up in the future.

The role

This role is primarily a coordination, facilitation, and relationship management role, but will also require some hands on educational resource development therefore the ideal candidate will a require reasonable level of educational knowledge as well as an understanding of Matauranga Maori principles and preferably Tapuika history & cultural values.  You will be joining a fresh, energised dynamic team who are dedicated to bringing Tapuika’s goals and aspirations to fruition
