Kaitiaki of the Whenua

Delivery of Primary Industries training to Wharekura in the Eastern BoP is about taking the learning to the student.  The programme is based in their rohe and whenua and delivery takes place on the Maori land blocks and local marae. An essential part of what we are collectively wanting to achieve is to connect our rangitahi to their whenua, the importance of whakapapa and  recognizing the pathways and opportunities that come with their whenua.
