 Support for Staff

 

UCOL | Te Pūkenga values the growth and success of its academic staff. We do this by in a number of days.

Te Atakura


All our teaching staff are partnered with a Te Atakura coach to help them reflect on their practice and pull our Te Atakura values into their teaching environment. This improves teacher capability, the system/structures that support teaching and learning, and most importantly, it improves our students’ experience and achievement outcomes.

Professional Development

  • 10 days of agreed professional development leave per year
  • A regular series of professional development workshops on a variety of professional practice topics
  • Annual Staff Symposium organized by UCOL | Te Pūkenga for all staff

A Connected Workplace

There is a strong connection between staff and senior management at UCOL | Te Pūkenga with monthly discussions on each campus led by Chief Executive Linda Sissons, and an annual Staff Welcome Day to set the scene for the year. We also have a shared intranet to help keep each other in the loop on what’s happening on campuses, and a number of other communications that are shared across the whole UCOL | Te Pūkenga whānau.


Teacher Induction

Whilst UCOL | Te Pūkenga prefers that teaching staff hold an adult teaching qualification, we understand that this is not always possible. Newly appointed academic staff who do not hold such a qualification will be enrolled in a formal programme of study to complete UCOL | Te Pūkenga’s preferred tertiary teaching qualification, New Zealand Certificate in Adult and Tertiary Teaching and/or the New Zealand Certificate in Adult Literacy & Numeracy Education (Vocational/Workplace).

We also have a new employee orientation programme designed for our staff who are new to UCOL | Te Pūkenga, so that they get started at UCOL | Te Pūkenga in the best possible way. This includes a pōwhiri or mihi whakatau, joined by co-workers from across the campus. This is also where they are first introduced to Te Atakura, UCOL | Te Pūkenga’s unique learning approach.

Teaching staff attend for a whole day and participate in  additional orientation programmes, learning about teaching strategies, technology in teaching, and assessment and moderation.
