Our Projects

We have a number of live projects with whānau, communities and external partners working towards realising potential and achieving our ultimate goal of raising whānau income.

Collaborations

Collaborations

Key to our success are the strong relationships we have with a range of partners across many sectors. Two great examples of collaboration are: Otago University’s Education Support Services with whom we led a consortium delivering professional development to teachers. The second: He Toki Māori Trades Training programme consortia created initially to provide entry into the construction industry – Ara Institute of Canterbury and Hawkins construction are but two of the strong and enduring relationships that have grown from this.

Research

Research

As part of our commitment to research and development, especially in relation to culturally responsive practice (CRP), social justice and equity in education, we have a commitment to share our findings with a range of interested parties – community and academic. One of our current projects is investigating the impact of professional learning on tutor and assessor practice in partnership with Ako Aotearoa.
