Manukau, 4 - 5 September 2017

Te Ara Whakamana is New Zealand’s largest forum dedicated to education and employment pathways and transitions. 

Now in its seventh year, this event brings together educators, policymakers, and industry representatives to support the creation of learning environments that enable learners to progress successfully through education and on into high-quality careers.

Registrations are open now!

Nau mai, 'Aere mai - we invite you to register for our Wānanga/Fono that focuses on making a difference for Māori & Pasifika learners through literacy and numeracy.

Join us at Manukau Institute of Technology's Pasifika Community Centre on 5 and 6 July.

Dates: Monday 2 October and Tuesday 3 October, 2017

This conference explores how the spaces that we teach in – real or virtual – are well designed for our learners. 

Conference strands will delve into the design of learning environments and learning practices that reflect our students’ lived experiences, that cater for our students’ practices and realities and traditions, and that meet the needs of employers and other stakeholders. 

We’re looking forward to seeing you there!
