The education union NZEI Te Riu Roa announced this week that it will support the Te Kōhanga Reo National Trust campaign to obtain Tohu Whakapakari, a three-year qualification recognized by the Ministry of Education and NZQA.
Matua Takawaenga Laures Park states that Kōhanga Reo members have valuable skills in Te Reo and Te Ao Māori, which are essential to Tamariki, and need to be properly recognized and rewarded.
“The Ministry of Education and the NZQA have avoided this problem for over 20 years. Tofu Fakapakari is the Kohanga Leo Tofu that produces Kaiako and must be recognized as such. This is Tekohanga. It’s an important mahi that the Leo National Trust is working on, and as always, they have our support, “says Park.
“Tofu Fakapakari is an indigenous qualification and has been waiting for approval from these Pakeha institutions.
“NZEITeRiu Roa supports every effort to improve the condition and results of Kaiako and Tamariki. To that end, we have launched another equal wage claim on behalf of the members working at Kohangaleo. This claim is Tohu Wakapakari will cover the need to be recognized as an educational qualification. ”
The treaty-based organization NZEI Te Riu Roa is New Zealand’s largest education union, with over 48,000 members and a strong support for quality public education.
