Programme Content

Embark on an inspiring journey to enhance your knowledge of Māori culture, language and tradition while developing skills towards higher-level study.

Dual Enrolment programmes are FREE if you're in Years 11, 12 or 13 and a great way to earn NCEA credits and get a feel for tertiary study, while you’re still at school.

This is an ideal study choice if you are currently excelling in Te Reo, or you have a keen interest in Māori language and society.

This course is held 1 day per week (Fridays 9am - 3pm), with several weekend wānanga sessions.

*Places are limited and funding is dependent on availability. Some courses may incur costs, depending on the learner's eligibility.
