- develop their understanding and knowledge of Ngā Whanaketanga Reo Māori and align Te Reo Matatini targets to national expectations.

Methods of delivery:
A flexible and tailored PLD programme is co-constructed with the kura following a strengths and needs analysis. The programme:
- takes a blended e-learning approach balancing ‘kanohi ki te kanohi’ kura based and regional facilitation with participation in an online reo Māori community
- will create and foster opportunities for collaboration within and between kura and Māori medium settings
Being a flexible and tailored programme, time and delivery method is negotiated with the kura. Delivery may include:
- Staff or one on one meetings
- Regional wānanga
- Akomanga based facilitation
- Participation in online Māori medium communities
Change in depth and intensity of provision is dependent on progress, and progress is reviewed regularly by:
- kura and Māori medium settings regularly review their progress toward established goals and needs identified during the initial strengths and needs analsysis
- participants developing an inquiry to critically reflect on their language learning and the associated impact on their practice reporting back to their learning communities
- Sustained teaching as inquiry, within an ongoing kura-wide reo capability self-review, is required to continue developing kaiako confidence, competence and capability in improving ākonga achievement
- Regular review of the marau a-kura and authentic whānau engagement to ensure the kura is directly responding to the aspirations of students, parents, whānau and iwi, high expectations and learning needs of ākonga
