Workshop – Success for Māori in tertiary education

Ako Aotearoa have organised a Christchurch based workshop:
Kia eke ki te taumata – Success for Māori in Tertiary Education

This akomanga workshop is designed for all educators (Māori and non- Māori) who work with Māori learners.

Through reflection, discussion and practical activities, participants will make connections to their own teaching context and explore some of the key findings from studies that investigated:

  • enhancing success rates for Māori learners
  • teaching with the principles of Te Tiriti o Waitangi
  • understanding Māori learners
  • implementing Kaupapa Māori.

The workshop facilitator will tailor the akomanga to ensure that it meets the needs of participants.

Putting the Development Back into Training & Development

NZATD Canterbury Branch invites you to their Event on
Thursday 22 August 2019:

“Putting the Development Back into T&D” – Practical Tips and a smattering of success stories.

Session Overview :  
Diane Edwards arrived at the Ports of Auckland back in 2011 at a time when leadership was in crisis.  She “inherited” staff who had been considered low potential and set about changing the leadership and therefore the culture of the Ports. Eight years on, all of her direct reports from that era have not only moved into the high potential category but have all gone on to be General Managers in their own right, leading high performing teams.
