AKO Aotearoa – Silver Sponsor

Ako Aotearoa holds a vital place in Aotearoa‘s tertiary education sector as an agent of change; committed to enhancing the quality of teaching and learning across tertiary-level adult education. 

Our work aims to strengthen how teachers, trainers and their organisations deliver high quality provision for all learners. 

Keeping a clear focus on life-long and life-wide learning, we partner and collaborate with tertiary organisations, Government departments, industry and workplaces to prioritise educational and cultural capability building. We acknowledge the important space that independent and private training education providers hold in our education system. 

We advocate that diverse learners, in whatever part of our tertiary system they choose to learn, be valued as partners and leaders in their education journey.
