Building Cultural Capability

Vision facilitators support schools and Kāhui Ako to build cultural capability ensuring all ākonga/learners are secure in their identity.

We work collaboratively to develop and strengthen the knowledge about specific cultures represented in your school community and support learner well being.  Our methodology values and supports strengthened partnerships with parents, whānau, iwi and local organisations. We recognise and advocate the importance and value of demonstrated commitment to Te Tiriti o Waitangi partnerships, use of Te Reo Māori and deep understanding of Tikanga Māori and manaakitanga within our work. Facilitators keep up to date on current research and are well equipped to support teachers and leaders to build cultural capability.

Skillful and Strategic Professional Learning

“Our Vision facilitator (Justine) built positive relationships with everyone she worked alongside and skillfully aligned her sessions with what we needed to develop in our practice based on our strategic aims.  Her professional development with staff has grown teacher knowledge, improved practice and accelerated progress for our learners.”

Knowledgeable and Authentic Professional Development

Benneydale School has been working with Leitia for 2 years in a wide range of capacities. Leitia has run a number of Teacher Only Days focusing on effective literacy practice in the classroom and she has modelled and supported best practice related to differentiated learning programs that support accelerated learning. Leitia has worked alongside teachers in the classroom providing feedback and support on teacher effectiveness. She has supported planning meetings with teachers and worked with them to refine their programs through using a coaching model. Evidence of teacher growth due to these coaching sessions can be seen in class practice. We have found Leitia to be very knowledgeable, quick to understand our needs and work with us to create our own PLD journey. I would recommend Leitia as a facilitator for any school wanting to provide authentic opportunities for staff to challenge their thinking and work towards enhancing their practice for the benefit of all learners.
