Helping teachers and leaders in Māori-medium and English-medium settings to be the best they can be. Haemata is a Ministry of Education preferred-provider.



We work with kaiako and leaders on:

  • language teaching strategies (incl. second language teaching)
  • bilingual, immersion, and culturally responsive pedagogy
  • reo Māori proficiency
  • career development. 



Our teaching and learning resources are designed to:

  • develop teacher knowledge and capability
  • engage learners 
  • facilitate the use of te reo Māori within the classroom.



What schools and kura teach matters. We want our kids to be proud and successful culturally, linguistically, academically, and socially in their world. That's why working on national and local curriculum is important to us.
