The Ako Aotearoa He Taunga Waka programme is holding its annual forum (wānanga-fono) to support educators improve literacy and numeracy outcomes for Māori and Pasifika learners.

The wānanga-fono will be held at the Manukau Institute of Technology in Ōtara, Auckland from 5–6 July 2017.

Educators of Māori and Pasifika learners and professional learning and development trainers can register for the forum online at Ako Aotearoa.

 The wānanga-fono provides:

  • a forum to identify and share good practice and discuss how it can be scaled up to benefit more learners
  • professional development opportunities for attendees
  • two-way communication between government and educators.

The theme of the 2017 wānanga-fono is ‘Educators making a difference for Māori and Pasifika learners through literacy and numeracy’ and the event will include speakers, practice workshops and dialogue sessions with educators and government.
