Talanoa Ako

In 2021, we are offering the Talanoa Ako parent and family focussed programme. Talanoa Ako parent and family focus is a 10-week programme for parents and their children. It consists of core fundamental Talanoa Ako sessions such as NCEA, pathways, local curriculum, and partner/parent-developed workshops.

Parent and family focussed programme gives the pacific community partners the flexibility to decide how the workshops are spread across the year, and what workshops they provide alongside the core fundamental Talanoa Ako sessions.

This programme seeks to provide support to areas with growing Pacific populations and responds to feedback received about the Talanoa Ako programme (formerly Pacific PowerUP) over the last five years.
