Te Ara Poutama


Student represents AUT at APEC forum in the Philippines

For Bradleigh Cherrington, who is a final-year Bachelor of Arts in Māori Development student, being selected as the student speaker at his upcoming graduation was a great honour, but little did he know that just a short while later he would be selected to represent AUT at the Asia-Pacific Economic Co-operation (APEC) Voices of the Future forum in the Philippines.

The forum, held in Manila from 12 – 19 November is an opportunity for youth from the region to come together and look at ways in which trade, social and international relations between these countries can be improved. 

Brad is the only delegate from AUT, and one of a select number of Kiwis who will represent New Zealand at the forum. Find out more about Brad’s journey

Te Ara Poutama at AUT is more than a learning space, it’s a community. It lives out the idea of Whakapakari - which means to discover, evolve and grow.

Our Māori media, Māori development, language revitalisation and te reo qualifications are at the cutting edge and have been developed in response to the need for skilled Māori professionals in the fast-growing  business and media sectors.
