In 2012, Ako Aotearoa and the New Zealand Union of Students’ Associations commissioned Heathrose Research Ltd. to undertake research into how tertiary organisations can effectively use the voice of students to improve quality of provision.
Building of an earlier Ako Aotearoa Regional Hub Project Fund project, (Luafutu-Simpson, P. et al., 2015), this collaborative project is focused on the implementation and monitoring of a Pasifika Success Toolkit in the Canterbury tertiary education organisations (Canterbury, Lincoln University and Ara Institute of Canterbury) . The longer view is to share the successful work and generalizable findings across, ideally, sub-sectors.
