Māori Cultural Capability
Ako has developed four kōwae/modules to support educators to deliver high-quality teaching and learning that is more culturally-appropriate for our Māori and Pacific students. Explore our range of options for educators to access our cultural capability pathways.
Facilitated, online introductory workshops

In-depth, tailored and facilitated courses for organisations
We also offer the option for organisations to book courses privately, customised to your specific learning requirements. We can discuss with you which of the cultural concepts your organisation would like to explore in greater depth, and design an approach to meet that need.
Taking that next step in your professional learning and development is easy with Ako Aotearoa. Everything is evidence-based, practical, high-quality, effective and sustainable.
In response to the current challenges of delivering “face-to-face” events, our range of PLD is delivered online - workshops and courses, many with digital badges awarded on completion:
