What are my support options for implementing curriculum progress tools?  

Thanks for your interest in implementing the curriculum progress tools – the LPFs and PaCT – in your school or Kāhui Ako. We have a range of options to support you in implementing these. You are able to access more than one of these supports.

Website resources

This website has been designed to support you to understand and use the two curriculum progress tools: the Learning Progression Frameworks (LPFs) and the Progress and Consistency Tool (PaCT). Each webpage outlines key messages about the tools and includes a range of resources that you can use in school-based PLD to support teachers to understand the key messages, and reflect on the implications for their practice. Four guides, available from the links below, provide school leaders with a high-level overview of a recommended approach to implementing and using the Curriculum Progress Tools:

How to use the Curriculum Progress Tools in literacy in years 1 to 8

How to use the Curriculum Progress Tools in literacy in years 9 and 10

How to use the Curriculum Progress Tools in mathematics and statistics in years 1 to 8

Online PLD

Delivered via Zoom, this twenty-week programme will support your school to understand and implement the curriculum progress tools. The programme is free to schools and involves up to 15 schools working together online. Places are currently available beginning Term 1, 2022. Contact progress.tools@education.govt.nz to indicate your interest and receive more information.

Support Schools Network 

Peer to peer support for teachers and schools. The support schools in this network are proficient users of the curriculum progress tools. They’ve experienced the benefits of the tools and they have practice and implementation insights to share with you.

Regionally Allocated PLD

A Regionally Allocated PLD application to your local Ministry office could allow you access to facilitators who will support you to implement or continue to develop use of the curriculum progress tools, where appropriate. Curriculum Progress Tools are connected to the following PLD priorities: Assessment For Learning, and Local Curriculum Design.
