Te Pae Tata has five strategic priorities that we believe will keep us aligned with our long-term strategic goal of providing a world-class indigenous educational experience that is sustainable, innovative and partnered for success.

The five strategic priorities within Te Pae Tata are:

  1. Quality and Integrity
  2. Sustainability
  3. Centres of Excellence
  4. South Auckland
  5. Investment

Quality and Integrity:

We will focus on our educational performance indicators, moderation and retaining our strong category confidence rating.

It’s important that we ensure our tauira pathways to academic success are clear and that we greatly improve our processes and technology around our enrolment.

Sustainability:

To ensure our financial sustainability we must achieve enrolment and budget targets and pursue alternative revenue streams.

We will also review our property portfolio, our vehicle fleet and the cost of our resources.

Centres of excellence:

A new centre of excellence for Te Reo Māori will forge the reputation of Te Wānanga o Aotearoa as the leader in this field for quality provision, best practice, rangahau and training.

South Auckland:

We believe there are educational opportunities for our communities in a fast-growing South Auckland.

As a result, we are looking to extend our reach there over the next few years.

Investment strategy:

Our kaimahi wellbeing is important to us so we will be reviewing the Wānanga Ora findings and implementing changes. Our remuneration strategy is also being evaluated as are our programmes and resources and our youth strategy.

We will continue to assess the technological and facility needs of our takiwā.

Over the next few weeks, your Hoe Whakatere for your takiwā and Ngā Tumu will be available to explain these strategic priorities in greater detail and will answer any questions you may have.
