General Courses

We assist our tribal members by way of being an educational provider, connector and influencer.

As a provider, we deliver programmes primarily to whaanau and marae who provide opportunities for all tribal members to become life-long learners and leaders.

As a connector, we connect tribal members to providers and services that support them as a life-long learners, particularly in the Maaori-medium and mainstream education settings.

As an influencer, we develop and maintain quality relationships with the Crown, Government agencies, regional authorities and other iwi to support the realisation of our people’s educational aspirations.
