Expert Partners

Expert Partners are academics and teaching practitioners who work with leaders of Kāhui Ako as they build collaborative practices and take action to meet their achievement challenges.

Expert Partners effectively act as critical friends to strengthen evidence gathering practices, critical data analysis skills, problem definition, and evidence-informed action planning. Their support will help to keep the Kāhui Ako on track for developing robust and quality achievement challenges and associated plans that will accelerate student achievement.

Expert Partners will agree on a work programme with their Kāhui Ako leader and will be available to support them for up to two years. An expert partner may work with up to 4 Kāhui Ako at one time.

There are 104 Expert Partners available nationwide. You can download a list of Expert Partners who are available to work with Kāhui Ako here.
