Kia Mauria Te Pono Kaupapa

Kia Mauria Te Pono Kaupapa

Hapaitia te ara tika pumau ai te rangatiratanga mo nga uri whakatipu.

-Foster the pathway of knowledge to strength,

independence and growth for future generations.

Kia Mauria Te Pono has been designed to highlight and encourage a meaningful understanding to the interwoven walls of self. The framework Te Whare Tapa Wha (Durie, 1982) and The Dynamics of Whanaungatanga (Tate, 1992) cradle the delivery. Storytelling conveyed in unison with the values, I runga te tika, te pono me te aroha, provides the essence. Our delivery is encumbered in a warm and gentle cloak of authenticity.

The workshop will illuminate the truths of self, while gently cradling the integrity and mana of all People.

The workshop has been designed with the intention of inspiring to aspire.

The delivery encourages creativity, while illuminating reflection.

Overall, our vision encapsulates the meaning of our Kaupapa. To believe that anything one attempts in life is possible. “One must always believe in the self’, take heed and become the master to your destiny, hence the Kaupapa, Kia Mauria Te Pono.

Te manu e kai i te miro, nōna te ngahere. Te manu e kai i te mātauranga, nōna te ao.

The bird that feeds on the miro berry, theirs is the forest.

The bird that feeds on the tree of knowledge, theirs is the world.

Hauora Kaupapa / Wellbeing

Ko au te whenua, ko te whenua ko au

-I am the land and the land is me.

Our kaupapa is based on a holistic biopsychosocial model of wellbeing which draws upon Sir Mason Durie’s Te Whare Tapa Whā model of health. 

The model is based on the metaphor of a wharehui / meeting house with four walls, each representing a different dimension of wellbeing: taha tinana (physical health), taha wairua (spiritual health), taha whānau (family health), and taha hinengaro (mental health). 

A fifth dimension of whenua was subsequently added to the model as the foundation for the other four dimensions. Whenua can be thought about as ‘your place of belonging’. For Māori, the whenua is a key part of identity. The model emphasises the importance of caring for all five aspects of wellbeing to support hauora / wellbeing. 

Work Journey Needs / Hauora Health Check Assessment

  • During the recruitment and onboarding stages of this programme, specialists will conduct a Work Journey Needs and Health Check Assessment.
  • Different tools will be used to support these assessments.
  • The Work Journey Assessment offers a holistic future looking assessment of what skills, attributes, interests, dreams and aspirations the ākonga has and will inform the practical Individual Training Plan to get there.
  • The Hauora Health Check / assessment will capture health and wellbeing challenges and also inform the development of the personal individual Training Plan.

We pathway work-ready adults into careers.
