In 2019, EP supported New Zealand kaiako to improve their knowledge of Te Ao Māori and use of Te Reo Māori in the classroom. EP’s Te Ao Māori course was hugely popular as it could be completed online whenever teachers found available time. Upon completion of the course, teachers received a certificate to acknowledge their efforts and commitment to developing their overall knowledge of Kaupapa Māori.

“We’re proud to be able to support so many teachers and students across the country with learning Te Reo Māori. We have fantastic course material, which we hope will encourage both schools and businesses across Aotearoa to pick up the essentials of Te Reo Māori and general tikanga.
