"We begin with ascertaining from and with the community what they would like to do improve things for them and their children." Russell Burt

The Outreach brings together the power of a lateral learning network looking to build community partnership. This partnership underpins all design, implementation and evaluation.

Board of Trustees, family, whānau, aiga will need capacity building to engage with the learning pedagogies as effective partners in the learning community. Parents become learners along with their children, for example, as they become competent in the use of their child’s digital device, understand the power of collaborative practice and the importance of active engagement and feedback. Parents have a key role in helping to shape the pace and scale of the development programme, and their contribution as investors impacts significantly on the timing of implementation  of new learning processes.
