Unuhia te pō, te pō whiri mārama,
Tomokia te ao, te ao whatu tāngata,
Tātai ki runga, tātai ki raro, tātai aho rau,
Haumi e, hui e, tāiki e.
Tēnei te reo pōhiri ki ngā muka tāngata katoa huri noa kia tono mai mō tēnei wānanga whakangugnu kaiako ki raro i te maru o Tātai Aho Rau o CORE Education.
Tātai Aho Rau is a concept that drives our professional practice at CORE Education. The principles and values also form a touchstone for the endeavours that CORE supports and promotes, including the Dr Vince Ham eFellowship.Tātai Aho Rau encapsulates four key elements:
- Whakapapa: research and innovation that connects ideas to practice
Tikanga: research and innovation that has an element of reciprocity and sustains links between people/organisations
Reo: research and innovation that is shared in places where it can be used and sustained in practice
Wairua: research and innovation that is inclusive, encourages learning and critical reflection
The Dr Vince Ham eFellowship offers a unique opportunity for professional development for innovative educators. The eFellowship has been operating since 2004 on an annual basis. It involves teachers and kaiako in the early childhood, primary, and/or secondary sectors conducting an action research project with mentoring and financial support. The eFellowship is available to teachers and kaiako working in New Zealand in either English or Māori Medium kura, schools and ECE.
Throughout the programme, there is an emphasis on social justice and equity and how everyday changes in practice can produce sustained and transformative change in education.
The eFellowship is an invigorating and intellectually stimulating experience that aims to provide inspiration, thought leadership, and provocation. You’ll get to meet some like-minded educators — and have great fun!
