Programme Delivery Manager

Ava Meek has made teaching her life’s work. Originally training as a physical education teacher, she has worked in secondary schools all over the country, including an incredible 20 years spent at Paeroa College, where she held HOD roles for PE and digital technology.

More recently, Ava has taken on a fresh challenge – teaching adult learners in an online environment. She began working for BMP as a tutor but was quickly appointed to the role of Programme Manager, responsible for overseeing our business management programmes and our tutors. She works tirelessly to support our tutors and in doing so, ensures we provide the very best service and support to our students.

“It’s always satisfying to hear the excellent feedback tutors receive from students about the support they’ve received and the relevance of the programmes, and it’s great seeing students return and complete two, three or even four of our courses. I can honestly say we do an excellent job. We make a real difference and provide excellent programmes that are relevant to business today.”

Armed with a Bachelor of Education, a Diploma in Business Studies (Coaching) and a Diploma in Business Management, Ava is also deeply passionate about embracing biculturalism and empowering all Aspire2 students to succeed.

“As a pākehā I am committed to expanding my knowledge of te ao Māori (Māori world view), supporting our Māori and Pasifika students, and ensuring equitable opportunities for success in our programmes.”
