Hei Raukura Mō Te Iwi is an accreditation framework developed for kura and the Māori medium that was constructed with input from PLD working groups.
The key ideas and principles of Hei Raukura Mō Te Iwi are at the core of the accreditation process for both English and Maori mediums and have been adopted as the foundation of the overall accreditation model.
Productive working relationships will underpin the success of the process: Whanaungatanga.
The Community of Learning, kura, school, or kaiako should be able to access support in their preferred language of engagement: Te reo me ōna tikanga (mātauranga).
The Community of Learning, kura, school or kaiako should be able to access support that is culturally appropriate, relevant to their setting and the way they do things: Te mana o te kura.
In order for a Community of Learning, kura, school or kaiako to engage successfully with PLD in specific areas of need (specialised areas), this requires facilitators who meet all of these criteria: Te matatau ki āna kaupapa.
