eBooks collection

This series of iBooks was initially developed for use by Te Kotahitanga facilitators in the field. We have reformatted a number of these as web pages (eBooks). They retain the features of the original publication, for example, the original page numbers and the resources within them are included to download.

On this website, each eBook is available for online viewing (which allows you to view the videos within it) and also as a downloadable PDF.
