Common Practice Model


We are preparing to close this site soon as this content has now moved to Tāhūrangi.

Tāhūrangi is the new online curriculum hub for Te Tāhuhu o te Mātauranga | Ministry of Education.


The Common Practice Model is part of the Literacy &  Communication and Maths Strategy announced in 2022  to lift educational achievement and address equity so that all students are able to experience success in their learning.

The Common Practice Model is part of a much wider programme of work by the Ministry to enable and support learning by all students and mokopuna. It aligns with a range of other work, including Te Whāriki and Te Mātaiaho | the refreshed New Zealand Curriculum

Broadly speaking, the New Zealand Curriculum describes "what" is taught, and the CPM focuses on "how" to teach, for literacy, communication and maths.
