Māori language is the essence of culture and as such is an inherited treasure acknowledged through the Treaty of Waitangi. It is through Māori language that the full range of Māori customs can be expressed, practised, and explained.
About our group and team
The purpose and goal of Te Uepū Reo Māori is to ensure that all learners who commit to learning in and through the Māori language have access to quality provision and learning experiences. The group is responsible for setting the strategic direction to ensure the growth of te reo Māori, the Māori medium pathway and those learning the language. It is through this learning journey that Māori language learners can access the Māori world and understand their role in it.
Te Uepū Reo Māori covers the ages 0-18 pathway for students who have committed to the learning of, or. learning through, te reo Māori. We also lead the review and development of Te Marautanga o Aotearoa and Te Aho Arataki Marau mō te ako i te reo Māori.
About the role
The Senior Communications Adviser, Te Reo Māori, will provide advice, influence and vision to ensure internal and external audiences have a clear understanding of the Te Reo Māori Work Programme, the outcomes it strives to achieve and the benefits this will provide to Te Reo Māori and Māori medium teachers and learners, whānau, hapū and Iwi.
You will work closely with the Programme Manager, Senior Management and Project leads within the Group and other communication specialists in the Ministry of Education to deliver well-targeted communications.
This includes providing advice and expertise to senior management to develop strategies, services and products which reflect the needs and aspirations of Te Reo Māori and Māori medium teachers and learners. Also you will bring expertise on how to connect effectively with Māori networks and communities.
Collaboration, team work and the ability to self-manage and deliver at pace are also important, as is your proactive, resilient and calm approach to stakeholder engagement.
Te Reo Māori fluency isn't essential, however having some knowledge will help you to succeed and grow in the team environment and in the role.
Are you ready to make a difference?
We welcome candidates from diverse backgrounds, including Māori, Pacific and those with disabilities, who will enrich our understanding of the education system.
As a government agency, the Ministry is committed to keeping to the guiding principles of the Treaty of Waitangi in our work for and with Māori students, their whānau, hapū and iwi.
