Getting started in Māori for Staff: Administrators Guide

Getting started in Māori for Teachers: School Administrators Guide

Essentials for Getting Started

If you are keen to set up this course for your staff, please contact us.

Each teacher needs to have an EP student account to participate. If you need to set any teachers up with a student account, you can find instructions on how to add them individually here

You're also welcome to send us a list of their names and we'll be able to add them from there.

Teachers will need to remember to log in with their student account in order to have the progress tracked and receive their certification.

The programme would be most successful if you have a staff member allocated who is going to run the programme in your school. They can do things like set tasks, track progress and organise competitions to motivate the staff.

If this is a focus for staff in your school, we recommend that you allocate some staff PD/ meeting time for staff to work on Education Perfect to improve their Te Reo Māori skills. This will help staff to take the programme more seriously and allow the time to make progress.

General Tips

Run an initial staff meeting where you introduce the staff to the program - allow some time within this for teachers to log in and get started on their learning journey.

Allocating regular time slots for staff to have time to do their own personal learning will help with successful engagement with, and completion of, this course.

Setting tasks

To make the learning more directed, we recommend setting tasks for the staff. This will mean that when a staff member logs into the system, and access the student zone, they will easily be able to find the material they should be working on. Setting a task also allows you to easily track the progress they have made and see how much they have completed.

Setting assessments

You can also use our system to create quiz on any content in our system. Using the quiz function would enable to you set pre- and post- tests for your staff based on a particular unit. This might help staff to see the progress they have made and it might be a motivating factor.

Creating a competition is an easy and effective way to motivate both student and teacher learners! If you wanted to create a competition for staff, this would require your lead staff member to create a competition based on the Māori content. You could even provide some prizes if you wanted to encourage your staff to get enthusiastic.

As each teacher completes the course, they (or their supervisor) can notify us; we are intending to issue certificates of completion so that teachers are able to show a commitment to reo Māori upskilling if they need to show this for their appraisal, CV, or school PD requirements.
