PTEF2018

APSTE and Ako Aotearoa are proud to present the 2018 Pacific Tertiary Education Forum (PTEF), a fono for tertiary practitioners and stakeholders to talanoa (discuss) and create solutions to increase the successful outcomes of Pasifika in Aotearoa. 

The PTEF provides a platform for the voices of Pacific learners, teachers, support staff and tertiary leaders to be heard in one place - working together with agency stakeholders and others towards a collective approach for Pacific learner success. Participants will share in discussion and debate around what it means to be part of today’s rapidly changing tertiary education environment. The theme 'Be the change you wish to see in the world' will be examined through a uniquely Pacific perspective, drawing on the experiences of a broad cross-section from the tertiary sector.

Keynote Presentations

Keynote addresses by Associate Professor Hon Luamanuvao Dame Winnie Laban, DNZM, QSO (Assistant Vice-Chancellor Pasifika,Victoria University of Wellington), Hon Jenny Salesa (Associate Minister of Education), Dr Margaret Southwick (Emeritus Dean, Whitireia Community Polytechnic), and Dr. Jo Cribb (consultant on policy, research and strategy and author of new book ‘Don’t Worry About The Robots’) as well as exciting panel discussions between senior officials from central government agencies and Pacific learners from around New Zealand, are just some of the engaging sessions discussing the conference themes.
