Curriculum Mapping & Local Curriculum Development
Planning for coverage using a progressive approach with rich meaningful contexts
At Blend Learning, we work collaboratively with your school to plan a curriculum map that prioritizes learning based on your vision and values. Our approach adds richness to the curriculum and creates coherent pathways for all learners. We map and scaffold unique learning experiences by incorporating your local environment to give personalized opportunities to meet individual learners' needs. We believe that learning should be engaging, dynamic, and reflective of the learner's experiences, and our collaborative curriculum development is designed to achieve this.
Blend Learning is a member of the Ministry of Education PLD Provider Panel. Contact us to support you with your application for MOE Regionally Allocated PLD or talk to us about our support packages in this area.

WHAT SCHOOLS SAY
What a pleasure working with highly knowledgeable and skilled leaders who are well organised, are dedicated to building relationships and support teachers to make changes to their practice so our learners get optimum learning opportunities.
Facilitators that are responsive to our needs and have the in-depth pedagogical and curriculum knowledge that our kura needs. We have noticed a broadening of our children’s knowledge and appreciation of their local environment as our concept planning reflects our local curriculum.
Our teachers are so engaged in the Science PLD. They are given the practical tools to really get hands on with science. Blend Learning always provide authentic links to local curriculum with a Mātāuranga Māori Lens and make PLD relevant to our curriculum and classrooms.
CENTRAL CATHOLIC KĀHUI AKO
Blend Learning's facilitation style is extremely effective as skilled collaborators. Each of our schools received personalised development and experienced successful outcomes with the Aotearoa NZ Histories Curriculum.
