Each Community of Learning will be at different stages of development for each key area within the six domains. The following terms are used to describe stages of progress within a Kāhui Ako: establishing, developing, embedding, and fully functioning.
The Development Map is not a tool to rate your progress, rather a guide to help you understand where you are now and where you might be heading in the future. The embedding and fully functioning indicators require significant changes in how we teach, and how we organise learning to maximise progress and achievement for every learner on their personalised pathway.
At any time, each Community of Learning | Kāhui Ako will be at a different stage of development and MoE describe points of progress as: establishing, developing, embedding and fully functioning.
Boards of trustees will be less involved in the Teaching domain but will be actively involved in the others:
