E toro atu te ringa ki ngā oro puareare o te waokū o Tane te wānanga, koutou kei ngā pureke mowai o te Arareo Māori, e tā mātou uepū reo Māori. Ki te whai wāhi ai koe ki te reo Māori, ki Te Marautanga o Aotearoa, ki Te Aho Arataki Marau mō te Ako i Te Reo Māori, otirā ki te ao Arareo Māori (ngā wāhi whakaako mā te reo Māori mō te nuinga o te wā) tēnā koa tonoa mai ki ēnei tūranga.
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.
The purpose and goal of the Te Reo Māori Group is to ensure that all learners who commit to learning in and of 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. The Te Reo Māori Group covers the ages 0-18 pathway for students who have committed to the learning of, or learning through, te reo Māori and leading on the Te Marautanga o Aotearoa and Te Aho Araki Marau mō te ako i te reo Māori.
The Senior Communications Adviser, Te Reo Māori, is responsible for developing strategic communication and proactive media to ensure both 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 learners.
Key to this role is understanding effective communication practices, including the ability to draft high quality communications and use different channels to delivery messages to audiences. In particular, the ability to translate information from government and public sector sources and deliver it effectively to Maori audiences. Collaboration, team work and the ability to self-manage and deliver at pace are also important
Te reo Māori fluency isn't needed, however knowledge of te reo will be beneficial.
