Self-paced learning on Pathways Awarua
There are four value pathways, designed to increase cultural awareness of Māori knowledge and values:
About the courses
Each pathway is a separate course of work containing kōwae/modules to complete. Ako Aotearoa digital badges will be awarded on completion of assessment tasks.
Dr Mei Winitana, Kaiwhakahaere Māori/ Manager of Māori Cultural Capability at Ako Aotearoa, manages the series. Mei has extensive experience in tertiary education, training and development and workshop facilitation.
Liza Kohunui is the contracted assessor for the series. Liza has extensive experience in the tertiary sector, and has delivered programmes for core Government and education sector organisations.

Other professional learning options
In addition to the self-paced, online series, Ako Aotearoa has developed a series of introductory, one-hour public workshops. Based on applying cultural capability in work practice, these workshops run throughout the year – see the calendar and register here for the introductory sessions.
We also deliver in-house courses for organisations that wish to explore Māori Cultural Capability in greater depth. We will discuss with you which of the cultural concepts your organisation would like to cover, and design an approach to meet your team's learning needs. Find out more about these course options.
