He Toki ki te Rika – Inspiring Māori Leadership in Trades is a collaborative Māori Trade Training initiative between CPIT, Hawkins, Te Tapuae o Rehua, The Office of Te Runanga o Ngai Tahu, and the BETA cluster of ITO's and is supported by Te Puni Kokiri.
This initiative aims to increase the participation of Māori in trade based careers at all levels, meeting the immediate, short and long term needs and aspirations of our communities and ultimately build Māori capability within the building and infrastructure industries in Canterbury.
Studying with CPIT
He Toki ki te Rika will engage you in the appropriate trade training programme to suit your individual needs. You will study either full time at CPIT (the duration of the course depends on what subject and level you choose to study at) or on the job training through an apprenticeship with one of the ITO's from the BETA group. A Māori support team, from the Centre of Māori and Pasifika Achievement, will mentor you and support you throughout your training.
Māori Trades Training programmes are open entry and open to anyone of Māori descent.
For more information call 0800 24 24 76 and ask for the Centre of Māori and Pasifika Achievement.
