The vision of the Pasifika Education Plan 2013-2017 (PEP) is to see

Five out of five Pasifika learners participating, engaging and achieving in education, secure in their identities, languages and cultures and contributing fully to Aotearoa New Zealand’s social, cultural and economic wellbeing (p. 3).

To achieve this high goal, it is recognised within the plan that personalised learning is critical. For Pasifika students this not only means putting the learner at the centre of the plan but also their family and community. This allows for the each Pasifika culture to be recognised and given a voice in the education of the learner.

So where do I start?

Pasifika Education Plan 2013-2017: What does this mean for your school?

In thiimages short presentation, Manu Faaea-Semeatu—Pasifika Learning with Digital Technologies Facilitator with Te Toi Tupu—discusses what the PEP means for your school. She outlines the key parts of the PEP and how you can use it as part of your strategic planning in order to give every Pasifika student success in learning.
