Ākonga Support & Cultural Navigator
We are so excited to have Aifai Esera (About Us), Director of Pacific Growth, as our Ākonga Support & Cultural Navigator. Aifai 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. A good 'team environment' for all students at JNPAT is paramount to the well-being and success of our students. The Ākonga Support will always be around for a good kōrero!
