Mā Purapura Mai Lived Experience Leadership Programme

Mā Purapura Mai is a Māori lived experienced leadership kaupapa (programme) that comprises of five wānanga delivered over a five-month period. The fifth wānanga provides an opportunity for participants to present to one another and the facilitators their reflections of the wānanga.

The Dynamics of Whanaungatanga (relationships) were incorporated as a foundation framework to support tauira (students) to grow, develop and strengthen their knowledge and skills as lived experienced leaders able to use their mātauranga (knowledge) to influence positive health outcomes for tangata whaiora at all levels of the sector.
