— Māori learners
As your world changes, learning needs to fit around you, your whānau and your work. Te Pūkenga helps you learn in a way that suits your life – on campus, on-the-job or online – while enhancing your mana and success.
Te Pūkenga in practice
Learning with us is future-focused, relevant, real world, globally recognised, culturally inclusive, personalised and practical. It’s about the right skills you’ll need to walk into a great job and give back to your whānau and community.
Enhance your mana
Learn and grow with us but still hold on to your reo and tikanga. Bring who you are as Māori, and what it means to be Māori, and get the skills you need to find well-paid mahi.
Tautoko your community
Transform yourself, your whānau and your entire iwi. Learn to harness your new skills to build a better future for everyone and make your tīpuna proud. It’s part of our plan to support all learners and their whānau to thrive.
Support for ākonga Māori
Work within a learning community of open-minded industry experts. From the diverse to the disabled, our kaimahi will connect with you, your community, your culture.
Know that you deserve to be here
