Every year, Ako Aotearoa co-funds a range of projects aimed at improving tertiary sector teaching and learning and creating system-wide change.


We are making some changes to project funding that we hope will increase the level of participation from under-represented parts of the tertiary education sector.


Under a restructured Project Fund, we have sharpened our focus on evidence-based teaching and learning projects that align to the following strategic priority areas.


New policy and funding guidelines for the 2019 funding rounds are being developed we will release these by end of February 2019.
