Te Uepu Reo Māori - Te Reo Māori group

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 koianei ngā tūranga e tika ana moū.

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.

Te Uepū Reo Māori is one of several groups within ELSA. The purpose and goal of Te Uepū Reo Māori 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.

As an energetic, confident Project Coordinator you will have experience supporting projects through all phases of the project life cycle, the ability to upskill 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.

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.
