Teachers are being encouraged to use more te reo Māori into the curriculum through a new programme launched at parliament this morning.

Te Ahu o te Reo Māori is designed to improve all levels of Māori language ability across the education workforce.

Associate Education Minister Kelvin Davis says the Goverment wants te reo Māori to be an integral part of all students’ education by 2025.

He says the programme was developed over the past year by mātauranga and reo Māori experts as a combination of wānanga and online learning.

"It's basically designed to support and enable teachers, regardless of their abilty in te reo Māori, to be able to try a bit more, to use a bit more te reo Māori in the course of their teaching day," Mr Davis says.

This year Te Ahu o te Reo Māori is being offered in Waikato, Taranaki-Whanganui, Kāpiti-Horowhenua, and Te Waipounamu, and is available to all teaching and school support staff from early learning, kōhanga reo through to secondary school and wharekura.
