Welcome to Ako Academy
Our purpose at Ako is to lift confidence, knowledge and understanding through cultural professional development.
In te reo māori, the word 'Ako' means to learn and to teach. This is reflective in the worldview that education is a mutual exchange between kaiako, teacher and tauira, student.
We provide a fun, safe, and mana enhancing learning experience that builds cultural competency and confidence with te reo and te ao māori.
"Natalia has transformed my Te Reo, giving me the tools and confidence I need to use Te Reo in a wide range of formal and informal settings. Her patience and encouragement has really helped me grow my skills”
- Ruth Shinoda, Deputy Chief executive, ERO
