All tamariki/mokopuna, rangatahi and whānau are entitled to intentional and skilful practice.
Our practice must be skilful, appropriate, current and continuously developing and improving. Professional practice skills and behaviours are part of our professional kete; they promote intentional practice – these include relational skills, analytical skills, facilitation, advocacy, professional reasoning, theorising and communication.
Skills help us to understand the situation, to do something about it, and to do it well. Skills can be learned, repeated, honed and improved.
This domain promotes a core range of skills and behaviours needed to practise effectively with all tamariki and whānau Māori, helping us to identify our areas of strength and areas for development.
