Te Uepū Reo Māori

Ko tōku reo tōku māpihi maurea

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 tēnei 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.

About our group and team

Te Uepū Reo Māori

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 roles

We're looking for two Project Coordinators who will support Te Uepū Reo Māori by embedding and improving fit for purpose processes, systems and services that enable effective planning, monitoring and delivery of the Te Reo Māori Work Programme and other key initiatives.

As an energetic, confident Project Coordinator you will have experience supporting projects through all phases of the project life cycle, the ability to up-skill and mentor others, an eye for detail and some formal project management training such as Certified Associate Project Management (CAPM) or. equivalent, although not essential, would be an advantage.

You will support teams who lead multiple projects of varying size, nature and complexity, to ensure effective controls are in place throughout all phases of the project lifecycle. You'll also support the Programme Manager to ensure governance activities across our work programme are effectively managed.

Te reo Māori fluency isn't essential, however having some knowledge will help you to succeed and grow in the team environment and in these roles.
