Our work with Māori educators and learners
E ngā mana, e ngā reo, e ngā mata ora o te mātauranga matua, nau mai, whakatau mai ki te paetukutuku Māori o Ako Aotearoa. Ko tōna tikanga, he whakawhitiwhiti whakaaro i waenganui i a tātau, he tuku kōrero e pā ana ki ngā mahi Māori a te tari nei, ā, he kete rauemi hoki hei āwhina i a tātau. Kia hoki tātau ki te whakataukī a ō tātau mātua tīpuna,
“Ko te manu kai i te miro, nōna te ngahere. Ko te manu kai i te mātauranga nōna te ao.”

He Taunga Waka
The He Taunga Waka project aims to improve literacy and numeracy outcomes for adult Māori and Pasifika learners.
This project has three key components; designing a new blended professional development programme, engaging with communities and community groups to raise the awareness of the value of literacy and numeracy, and supporting the development of the Tairāwhiti literacy and numeracy hub.
The project, led by Ako Aotearoa is being undertaken in collaboration Literacy Aotearoa.
For 2016, The two He Taunga Waka workshops “Ako, Aro and Whanaungatanga” and “ The Pasifika Wave” (formerly called Teu Le Vā) are available for tertiary education organisations (TEOs) delivering programmes across the foundation sector.
