Welcome all ākonga - to JNP Aviation Training - a new and exciting tertiary provider of NZQA accredited aviation programmes and micro-credentials.

This essential role exists as part of our support team to help sustain and expand the supportive learning environment for all students at JNPAT. Aifai Esera (About Us) is the perfect fit for this support role; not only has he worked in Aviation Ground Operations, he also has an acute understanding of the context that comes with being a Pacific Islander raised in New Zealand. Born and raised in the village of Tuana'i in Samoa, Aifai's role is to provide inclusiveness and continuity for Pacific and Māori ākonga - and all JNP Aviation Training students by being present and available.

How JNP Aviation Training is working towards complying with the code:
JNP Aviation Training has gathered the information needed through an initial GAP Analysis process to inform JNP Aviation Training and their learners about the effectiveness of our current practices in relation to the Code outcomes sought for JNPAT’s learners. At the end of this analysis, JNP Aviation Training has provided an Action Plan for Nov 2023 – Nov2024, to carry out the following:      
*Based on our analysis, indicate what we need to do differently in the coming year.·    
*Identify who is responsible for implementing the planned next steps, and by when.      
*Explain how will we monitor our plan to ensure that it is implemented.      
*Explain how will we know that the actions we took were successful.
