We value the contribution ākonga Māori bring to WelTec and Whitireia. To assist you to complete your course of study successfully we have the Tamaiti Whangai and Te Ati Awa team at WelTec, supporting the WelTec ākonga regardless of their campus of study, Te Wananga Maori and Ngāti Toa Rangatira at Whitireia supporting Whitireia ākonga regardless of their campus study.
We have dedicated spaces (location below) for ākonga Māori wanting friendly and welcoming places to study, socialise, to get advice and support, advocacy needs and Mental Health services.
We are here to support the success and participation of Māori students at WelTec. Working out of the Petone Campus the Tamaiti Whāngai team will provide mentoring, pastoral, cultural and academic support. The team will also provide advocacy internally and externally as required.
