Paora Howe


I am of Te Arawa (mother), Ngapuhi (grandfather) and Tainui (father) descent, with Pakeha connections to Kent in England.

In the past I have been a secondary school Head of Department Languages, a Head of Department English, an Education Advisor for the Ministry of Education, kaiako and lecturer (Waikato University), a Secondary School Inspector, Education Review Officer, senior policy analyst, policy manager, and a senior policy manager. I was a director of a recruitment and HR company I helped establish in 2004 (KP Solutions). Since then, I have been an independent business consultant specialising in management and leadership training, communications and personal relationships, and Treaty of Waitangi training. I have also been responsible for writing a number of Ministry of Education reports that have either become the basis for Ministry policy, or that have been useful as strategic documents on which to base policy. My main interests remain literacy development, education research and strategic policy development and implementation processes, especially where the interests of iwi, hapū and Māori are the focus.
