TPK major sponsor for national Māori tertiary education hui
Te Puni Kōkiri on board as major sponsor for national Māori tertiary education hui
Ako Aotearoa – New Zealand’s National Centre for Tertiary Teaching Excellence – is thrilled to have Te Puni Kōkiri’s endorsement and support for its national hui in Manukau, Auckland next week (1-3 August).
Confirmed yesterday, the sponsorship highlights a shared drive to support and celebrate Māori success in Aotearoa New Zealand.
For Tuia Te Ako hui this year, Ako Aotearoa has teamed up with the 11 Industry Training Organisations represented by Te Rautaki Whakarōpū Māori of the Industry Training Federation. The event will showcase the many vocational pathways Māori learners can take to develop skills that bring success for them, their whānau, communities, iwi and country.
The three day event brings together an inspiring range of presenters, research, projects and resources developed to support tertiary Māori learners and the staff that support them.
Dr Joseph Te Rito, Ako Aotearoa’s Deputy Director Māori, believes the more that key agencies and institutions work together on issues to build greater parity of outcomes for Māori, the greater chance we have of achieving this. He also encourages Māori to attend Tuia Te Ako where they will learn about the multiple pathways to further education and employment available to our rangatahi.
