Tūturu "has changed the focus from punitive to pastoral"

Tūturu is an initiative for secondary schools, managed by Te Tūāpapa Tarukino o Aotearoa / the New Zealand Drug Foundation. Tūturu aims to keep students engaged and learning at school and prepare them for a world where alcohol and other drugs exist. Tūturu assists schools to:

  • Make a philosophical shift away from a behaviour management approach, towards a support and wellbeing approach to student use of alcohol and other drugs
  • Strengthen pastoral processes and pathways so schools are better able to identify students early on who need support, and ensure students are directed to support options.

In 2020, Rangahau Mātauranga o Aotearoa / NZCER conducted an evaluation of the pilot of Tūturu, which is now available for anyone to read.
