I have over fifteen years’ aviation experience in New Zealand and overseas including five years as a Commercial Pilot for Cathay Pacific in Hong Kong and other pilot contracts for private scenic charters in New Zealand. I have also spent over 5 years as Chief Flight Instructor here in the Bay, and in Hamilton. My enthusiasm and passion for teaching and being part of people's growth and learning journeys has never left me – and after being in several management roles I am now very excited to be back in aviation ground operations and to be an integral part of the learning journey – for our learners, ground operations staff and myself!
Emily is JNPAT's team administrator. Emily is an integral part of our team to ensure everything is running smoothly and all our data management systems are up to date.

JNPAT's aim is to foster a positive and productive 'team environment' that is culturally inclusive for all students. We are lucky enough to have Aifai - born and raised in the village of Tuana’i in Samoa. Aifai has worked in ground operations himself along time ago, and now is the Director for Pacific Growth Services (https://www.pacificgrowth.co.nz/). Aifai is on board with JNPAT to support all learners - from both the working environment and to school learners.

I am delighted to provide a quality PTE offering supported education and a pathway to employment - vocational education and gateway micro-credentials for secondary school learners. I am from Nuiean and Māori decent; and we have more than 100 staff employed in aviation ground operations with JNP Aviation (our award winning, reputable and successful ground handling operation in the aviation industry) many of whom are also Māori and/or Pacific people. As a consequence, our PTE, JNP Aviation Training has all the support, policies and processes to enrol and protect and enhance the wellbeing of all learners, specifically our Māori and Pacific ākonga. I resonate with those like me - I didn't walk into a university straight after school, but worked hard to realise opportunities are endless if you get the chance, the support and the pathways to walk on!

I work from behind the scenes at JNPAT keeping all policies and processes monitored and current to ensure 100% quality education is delivered safely to all JNPAT students in the aviation environment. My job is to assist JNP Aviation Training to continually meet its vision of excellence in aviation training and provide supported and effective vocational education leading to employment and further educational pathways. My background and current line of work is in all things education - both tertiary and industry, and working with JNPAT has provided me with an insight into the exciting aviation sector amongst a positive and motivating team.
Our verifiers come from the aviation ground operations industry; working for our parent company JNP Aviation. They are highly trained 'on-job' trainers and Air New Zealand 'TTT' trained. The verifiers have a wealth of skills and knowledge to share with our new learners at JNPAT.
Safety is an integral part of aviation, and as the Health, Safety & Well-being Manager for JNPAT I’m privileged to be able to guide and facilitate the safety culture within this organisation. Excellence in aviation training requires a total commitment to embedding safety as a core value in all of our staff and learners.
