TEACHING & LEARNING
Te Ara Kōtihi
Te Ara Kōtihi means ‘the pathway to success‘ and it’s our organisation-wide strategy that provides structure, principles and goals to ensure we are all working as a collective - to provide high quality, equitable teaching and learning that enables all learners to meet their goals and aspirations.
The whakataukī (a Māori proverb) Nā tō rourou, nā taku rourou ka ora ai te iwi, With your food basket and my food basket we will thrive frames our strategy. This highlights the importance of having a shared purpose and everyone contributing to ensure we thrive as a collective.
Te Ara Kōtihi is a central part of the academyEX commitment to Te Tiriti o Waitangi with positive relationships and values (Manaaki, Rangatiratanga, Ako and Pono) driving our practice.
Celebrating our Learners Success
Graduation is one of the most special times of the year at academyEX. We love celebrating the hard work, dedication and positive impact learning has had for our students, but also our faculty who support our learners through their journey. Our most recent graduation ceremony in 2022 was a celebration of those who have grown perosnally and professionaly, built new knowledge and capability beyond what they thought they were capable of - found confidence to uncover their authentic selves.
LEARNER SAFETY, INCLUSION AND WELLBEING

We strive to create an environment where every learner feels empowered, valued, supported, and inspired to reach their highest aspirations. Our Learner Wellbeing and Safety Strategic Goals:
