The Pupuke Kāhui Ako Competencies Resource

The Pupuke Kāhui Ako Competencies Resource (Edition 1), designed for schools to implement, reference, or adapt to suit their own purposes, is now available on our website in the Resources drop down option.

This resource has been developed by Pupuke Kāhui Ako educators to support fellow educators in elevating and enhancing the teaching and learning of competencies. It is inspired by the work of Charles Fadel and the Center for Curriculum Redesign.

The resource includes a range of teaching ideas and strategies organised under 12 future-focused competencies headings.
