Māori parity focus for Ako
Ako Aotearoa, the National Centre for Tertiary Teaching Excellence, has appointed Helen Lomax from Te Aitanga-a-Māhaki as its new director after an international search.
Ms Lomax has been acting director since February.
Before joining Ako in 2015 she was principal advisor Māori with the Tertiary Education Commission.
Ako chair Graeme Benny says her knowledge and insight of the public sector and tertiary education environment have contributed much in how Ako Aotearoa partners with the tertiary sector to drive success for learners, with particular attention on addressing parity for Māori and Pacific.
