Te Toki Pakohe is the centre of Māori education at NMIT
Te Reo Māori lies at the heart of Māori culture. Whether you are a beginner or are already on your Te Reo and Tikanga Māori journey, we can help you develop further. As the presence of Māori in the New Zealand economy grows, many sectors such as health, finance, media, public service, social and community have an increasing need for people with skills in Te Reo and Tikanga Māori.
Te Reo Māori can lead you to many fulfilling career opportunities such as tutoring in the tertiary sector, kohanga reo, kura kaupapa and whare kura, youth and community work as well as helping organisations to interact with and develop strategies for Māori. At Te Whare Wānanga o Te Tau Ihu o Te Waka a Maui our team of tutors are dedicated advocates, promoters and 'livers' of Te Reo and Tikanga Māori and have a commitment to sharing their passion and experience with others while growing the understanding of Tikanga Māori and Te Reo. Nō reira, nau mai haere mai!
For many of our programmes we offer additional options including; Karanga, Whaikorero, Iwi, Kaumatua.
