This activity is about Outreach clusters learning to create local investment partnerships with their own parents and participating with the MET in national and international partnerships. These partnerships will bring to the development program new lateral learning relationships, expertise, time and money.

At the local and regional levels, Outreach cluster leaders will discover quickly that they also need to learn the art of partnering with investors. In the first instance, they will need to learn to create local investment partnerships with their own parents. Mindsets shift from school ‘donations’ to regular investment into their children’s digital tools for learning. 

Outreach leaders changing the mindsets of their parents as well as participating with the MET in national and international partnerships will bring to the development programme new lateral learning relationships, expertise, time and money. 

The Manaiakalani Education Trust is framing its Outreach programme as a Public Good Partnership investment whereby funding responsibilities are shared between:
  • local partners 
  • parents and whānau 
  • board of trustees, 
  • philanthropists
  • commercial supporters
  • academic partners
  • volunteers
  • vote education via the Ministry of Education and Government
  • Partners associated with MET investment into the Outreach programme
MET does not presently intend to support clusters with direct cash payments. Rather the Trust is facilitating a mixed-funding delivery model for a set of services and support to Outreach clusters. The clear intent is to maximise the use of available Vote Education funding and encourage direct financial support from local partnerships as far as possible.
