Leaked Allegations Were From Internal Review
Chair for the Kohanga Reo National Trust Board Dr Tīmoti Karetu says allegations leaked in a confidential report today to the media was an internal review undertaken late last year looking at ways of improving best management practice within head office only.
Dr Karetu says the board supported the internal review to better improve the way management carry out their responsibilities.
“We are no different from any other organisation that has reponsibilities towards our kohanga whanau, clients and stakeholders. We have 492 kohanga reo, Maori language development centres around the country that we are responsible for and the board is commited to improving the quality of what we do and how we do it.“
Dr Karetu says while the review highlighted alot of issues of concern to the board, we see this as an opportunity for further development and to get things right.
“It’s healthy for organisations to carry out internal reviews and sometimes you will not always like what you find. Restructuring the organisation in both national and regional offices we see as the first step towards addressing the concerns in the report highlighted by staff. “
Furthermore, as a consequence of the report, the board has been on the road for the last six weeks travelling with our new CEO Titoki Black meeting with our kohanga reo whanau, listening to the concerns they have and their future aspirations for the kohanga reo movement.”
He says the scheduled meetings seeking input from the kohanga whanau will provide the board with a framework to set a new strategic vision for the future which will replace the board’s current strategy.
We are now nearing the end of that journey having met with twelve regions with two remaining.
