Professional Cultural Development


Te Wānanga o Aotearoa has proudly contributed to the transformation of whānau, communities, and peoples of Aotearoa for nearly 40 years.

Te Wānanga o Aotearoa has been bringing life to our vision of whānau transformation through education for almost four decades, positively changing the lives of whānau and their communities across Aotearoa. Te Wānanga o Aotearoa is now bringing our mātauranga (knowledge) to the corporate world, and it’s a game changer!  

Does your organisation want to engage deeper with te ao Māori at a corporate level? Do you want to explore the opportunities that our mātauranga can offer?

Our professional cultural development courses are our offer to partner with you to explore the value that Maori culture language and practices can offer your organisation. We bring our expertise and insights, tailored to your organisation and people’s needs, within a safe and comfortable environment.

Get in touch today about Piharoa (Senior Leadership/Governance) or Te Ata Tū (Organisation-wide) where we'll partner with you to transform your organisation, with knowledge that you’re also transforming communities across Aotearoa.


Piharoa - Senior Leadership/Governance Teams (in development)

This course is designed specifically for exploring the value that Māori culture, language and practices can bring to individuals, organisations, and your engagement with stakeholders. There is a strong focus on corporate awareness of Te Tiriti o Waitangi, te hītori (history) of Aotearoa, the practical application of tikanga (cultural practices) in the workplace, and the opportunities for engagement with your people, organisation and stakeholders. 

We will partner with you to explore the value of our reo and tikanga, and through this partnership, we will support you to achieve your organisational needs. By embarking on a journey of partnership with us, you will be amplifying the broader positive social impact that Te Wānanga o Aotearoa has been delivering for 40 years.
