Māhimaru Marae Awanui, Northland hosted the first delivery of Kaitiaki Ahurea wānanga for 2020, and it was concluded at Waimanoni Marae, with participant group assessments. The wānanga provided health workforces with an opportunity to explore, discuss and debate topics, about their engagement in their Māori communities.
As a series of ten wānanga, this was the first of a response of Te Rau Ora and the Ministry of Health to enhance access and choice in Māori communities by way of supporting workforce approaches to Māori.
Each wānanga entails a two-day learning component and then a subsequent group presentation process as part of the formal assessment of learnings. The outcome is an New Zealand Qualification Authority (NZQA) qualification and an appreciation of effective engagement with Māori communities.
Unfortunately, due to COVID 19, we have had to postpone the planned delivery of Kaitiaki Ahurea until further notice, we will keep you updated through our Facebook and website.
