Māori and Pasifika support

Nau mai, haere mai ki te Kuratini o Te Tai Poutini,

Enrolling in tertiary education is a major stepping stone to your chosen career. It is important you are able to study in a supportive and culturally friendly environment where you feel you belong and you can learn with purpose.

As part of Te Pūkenga, New Zealands national vocational training provider, Tai Poutini Polytechnic puts our ākonga (learners) at the centre of everything we do. We want to make learning work for you.

We can help you with

  • Scholarship and grant applications
  • Hapū, Iwi and community contacts/links
  • Study and learning support
  • Mentoring/welfare support
