Event Details

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 key 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. Read more about the sub-themes on the website.

The planning committee believe that by continually building cultural awareness and capabilities in our tertiary providers, the sector will lead the way to better lives for Pacific peoples. By 2026 around 10% of New Zealand’s population will be Pacific peoples, so making positive and enduring impacts now will enhance the productivity of the entire nation.

We are delighted to announce that Associate Professor Hon Luamanuvao Winnie Laban, Assistant Vice-Chancellor (Pasifika) at Victoria University of Wellington is a keynote speaker.

The organising committee are calling for a mix of oral, panel, poster and workshop presentations, and encourages presentations in lea-faka Tonga (Tongan language) as the PTEF coincides with Tongan Language Week 2018. We invite you to join this vaka/waka and be part of the exciting journey towards greater educational success. Please consider submitting your presentation today. Presentation submissions are due by 22 June. The submission process is online and accessible via the website.

Registration fees are $150 +GST (student) or $200 +GST (regular). There are some learner sponsored places available and students are able to register their interest for one of these via the online registration. Register today! We really hope to see you there.
