The theme of the forum is enhancing engagement among whanau, teachers and learners through reporting. Learning Auckland is looking forward to hearing from a range of stakeholders on their ideas, practices and models for improving engagement and relations between ECEs/schools, teachers and whanau.

Benefits for attendees

Attendees will gain proven, research-based approaches for engaging parents and whānau with children’s learning, practical tips for implementing these approaches; and meet other practitioners who are active and passionate about this important area of education.

Learning Auckland is a Collective Impact initiative, which harnesses the actions of individuals to create tangible, long-term and significant social change. Collective Impact is a relatively new change theory in New Zealand, so attendees can learn more about it at the event.
