  • Set, monitor and adjust the students learning plan which is aligned to each students passions, needs, and aspirations (Rautaki Ako)
  • Rautaki Ako needs to be carefully set out by each student and supported by their Kaiârahi to ensure that the students have an eye on their mid to long term goal and see the purpose in the Rautaki that they set and the classes that they have committed too. The Rautaki Ako is central to the students seeing purpose in their learning
