Building Cultural Capability is a face-to-face 3-day workshop designed to help create a school environment where learners from all cultures and diversities can thrive.

The purpose of this course is to support teachers and school leaders on their journey of cultural capability, no matter where they are on it, and leave them with practical and culturally appropriate ways to apply what they have learnt immediately back in the school and classroom. This course supports meeting obligations in the New Zealand Teaching Standards to demonstrate commitment to tangata whenuatanga and Te Tiriti o Waitangi partnership in Aotearoa New Zealand.

Who Should Attend
Anyone who works within the education sector or teaches in a New Zealand classroom can benefit from this course irrespective of the number of Māori learners, learners from different cultures, or learners with diverse identities at a school.

The most important criteria for attendance are an open mind, a willingness to learn, and to be prepared to challenge what may be long held beliefs.
