Tuia Te Ako – Māori Tertiary Educators’ Hui
Tuia Te Ako is gaining a strong reputation across the tertiary sector for its efforts to bring together prominent leaders in Māori tertiary education, iwi-based tertiary groups, individuals from the broader tertiary sector, and learners, in one hui dedicated to supporting future success of all Māori in tertiary education.
The hui is a platform for discussion and debate about what success may look like for Māori in tertiary education into the future, and how we help to raise levels of success for all. The hui provides opportunities for people to share ideas, to network and learn from each other, and take away those ideas to use in their own teaching and learning environments.
Tuia Te Ako 2018
Date: Wednesday 1st – Friday 3rd August 2018
Venue: Vodafone Events Centre, Manukau
Price: $250 (Learner/Apprentice) $300 (General Admission)
Ako Aotearoa's Māori Education Hui is co-hosted this year by New Zealand’s 11 Industry Training Organisations represented by Te Rautaki Whakarōpū Māori of the Industry Training Federation.
The event has broadened to attract Māori and non-Māori educationalists, teachers, lecturers, pastoral carers, policy & programme developers, researchers, training practitioners throughout New Zealand and all people interested in advancing achievement of Māori.
Tuia Te Ako 2018 also invites tauira Māori, job seekers, prospective students, tertiary education institutions, employers and community groups from across the South Auckland region and beyond to meet with Māori role models, business people, employers, employees, trainers, tutors as well as apprentices and other learners. We believe that this will be a prime opportunity to inspire our rangatahi to aspire to become a skilled and employed tradesperson, ultimately becoming employers and business people themselves.
The key theme for Tuia Te Ako 2018 is: Ararau – Vocational Pathways to Māori Learner Success.
