The Language Planning Team of Te Taura Whiri i te Reo Māori has three core functions:

  • providing support, advice and tools for public and private sector organisations on language planning and language revitalisation;
  • developing, and facilitating access to (including through this online ‘hub’), resources and tools to support language planning, implementation and review/evaluation;
  • supporting the sharing of learnings within and amongst organisations, and promotion of public service contributions to Māori language revitalisation.

We recommend the following process:

  • Self Assessment – Identify what you currently have and where you want to be.
  • Plan Development – Assign responsibility. Identify actions and measures. Set timeframes.
  • Plan Implementation – Get going. Monitor progress and identify (where applicable) pain points
  • Review and Refreshment – Measure progress and compare this to where you started. Share your learnings. Celebrate success. Iterate and implement again.
