He Toki is a collaborative training initiative that aims to increase the participation and success of Māori. During your training Te Reo Māori, whakapapa and haka are affirmed. A Māori support team from the Centre for Māori and Pasifika Achievement (CMPA) is there to support you.
This initiative aims to increase the participation of Māori in trade based careers at all levels, meeting the immediate, short and long term needs and aspirations of our communities and ultimately build Māori capability within the building and infrastructure industries in Canterbury.
Studying with Ara
He Toki will engage you in the appropriate trade training programme to suit your individual needs. You will study either full time at Ara (the duration of the course depends on what subject and level you choose to study at) or on the job training through an apprenticeship with one of the ITO's from the BETA group. A Māori support team, from the Centre of Māori and Pasifika Achievement, will mentor you and support you throughout your training.
Māori Trades Training programmes are open entry and open to anyone of Māori descent.
