Our Mission Statement
To Empower Taiohi To Achieve, Contribute and Lead The Advancement of Māori
Tai Wānanga provides an opportunity for communities to design a learning framework that contributes to the advancement of Māori.
We incubate learning in a culture of:
TAI NUI: Purpose & High Expectation
TAI MANAWA: Passion & Inspiration
TAI KAHA: Perspiration & Hard Work
TAI ARIKI: Achievement & Goals Focused
Our Points of Difference
- All Taiohi have an ITLP opposed to a timetable.
- Learning is the constant and time is the variable.
- Focus is on the whole person:mental, physical, emotional and spiritual
- Focus for all tauira is aimed towards a Career Development Plan.
In November 2010 Tai Wananga was approved to establish campuses in Palmerston North and Hamilton.
In 2013 we received roll growth approval to establish a further four campuses by 2016.
