Taitokerau Education Trust has teamed up with the Te Puawai cluster of Northland schools to create the position of rūmaki and reo rua facilitator.

Whangārei Intermediate School teacher Neke Adams will support the cluster’s kaiako Māori to become digitally immersed in their classrooms, as part of the trust's successful digital immersion programme.

Trust executive officer Liz Cassidy-Nelson says schools within the cluster have a high percentage of Māori students, so delivering the programme in te reo is essential if all students are to benefit.

Currently there are no local Māori language resources available to Rūmaki and Reo Rua classes in Te Taitokerau.

Ms Adams says the ultimate goal is to get every teacher within the cluster collaborating in the Māori digital space.

Taitokerau Education Trust aims to raise achievement levels by providing teachers with professional development, and making personal-use devices accessible to students from lower-income households.

The new position is funded by Refining New Zealand
