Te Ako Manaaki Report

Te Ako Manaaki: A report and guide to the model and the work of west auckland

In 2020 and 2021 we put together a research and evaluation report that looks at the Te Ako Manaaki Model, what makes it work, and how another community might use the learning of West Auckland.

Te Ako Manaaki is a preventative model that is responsive to the needs of our most at risk and vulnerable tamariki. The Achieving at Waitakere Trust developed the model over a five-year period to help improve educational outcomes for young people in their community. Through their work with a variety of schools and interest from other communities, they have chosen to share their learning. Te Ako Manaaki works across the full spectrum of school ages and can be adapted to suit the context of different communities.
