Past Trust Strategies

Read below for more information about Education Strategies

Iwi Education Strategy, a Database and Implementation plans. This work was completed in early 2016 and comprised of three (3) reports, Education Strategy, Action Plan: Community Education, Action Plan: Measuring Success of Outcomes (RBA)

These reports are below.

Education Strategy

Action Plan One: Community Education

The strategic framework is a construction of five key goals that are generated out of a range of strategic issues that impact on Ngāti Pāhauwera
as a nation of people focussed on raising the prosperity of their whānau, hapū and surrounding communities. The goals are then developed into
objectives to be actioned through a series of implementation steps to be reviewed for successful outcome completion.

Read Part One of the Implementation Plan.

Action Plan Two: Measuring Success of Outcomes

Central to the achievement of the community-orientated goals and programme goals described in this action plan is the application of RBA as a reliable, robust and to-the-point system of accountability. This systematic process of accountability is adopted in the measurement of how well NgātI Pāhauwera Development Trust and its programme leaders jointly with whānau are making a difference in the lives of the people they serve. In other words, how does the Trust know:

  • How much they did to make a difference?
  • How well they did it?
  • Is anyone better off?
