Education support services

Aere Tai provides education support for Pasifika students and families where possible.

We work closely with education providers from early learning right through to secondary school to ensure families are engaged in education and learning opportunities are strengthened throughout a child’s education until finishing secondary school. 

Education support services focus on:

  • Participation in education
  • Achievement in education
  • Family engagement in a child’s education

Aere Tai locations funded to provide this service
