We are pleased to introduce Te Auaha’s new Head of School, Michel (Mick) Jays.

Mick began his career in tertiary education in 1990, and has developed significant experience and knowledge of the Institutes of Technology and Polytechnic (ITP) sector from teaching, administration and management perspectives, across a number of discipline areas, culminating in this current position as Head of School - Creative and Hospitality for the Wellington Institute of Technology (WelTec) and Whitireia Community Polytechnic. 


Mick’s specialist subject area is management, which he has practised within different contexts with a focus on sustainability, strategic management, organisational behaviour, marketing, and operations management. 

“I am looking forward to the challenge of leading and managing the School of Creative and Hospitality and working with the staff across WelTec and Whitireia campuses to continue to build on the considerable reputation that the disciplines already enjoy.”
