Welcome to the Team Solutions Secondary Literacy Middle Leaders' Wiki

Team Solutions is one of New Zealand's leading providers of professional development services for primary, intermediate and secondary schools. Team Solutions is part of the Faculty of Education, at The University of Auckland. Our whakatauki, Te kāhui akoranga ngaio (partners in professional learning), encapsulates the spirit of the way we work.

This wiki, in conjunction with the Team Solutions website - Team Solutions - The University of Auckland supports professional learning and development in New Zealand schools. It provides links, resources and practical information for:
  • Literacy Leaders;
  • Middle Leaders;
  • Classroom Teachers;
  • Facilitators and advisers.

Professional learning development will be offered to secondary schools in the region to support a system-wide shift for middle leaders (and teachers), supported by senior leadership teams, with a focus on:
  1. Ensuring the success of every student through developing the potential and success of the target student groups: Māori learners, Pasifika learners, and learners with special needs to develop the competencies and qualifications they require via a range of relevant pathways such as The Youth Guarantee, to improve access to tertiary, work training and/or employment.
  2. The implementation of The New Zealand Curriculum (NZC) and Te Marautanga o Aotearoa (TMoA), and the realigned National Certificate of Achievement (NCEA) achievement standards to develop a coherent school based curriculum to reflect the intent of the national curriculum framework across years 9-13.
  3. The development of teachers’ literacy and language knowledge and skills to attend to the language demand in each learning area.
