Ko Taupae Pia hei painga mō tātou tahi nei.
Mō Taupae Pia
Taupae Pia refers to the ridge or hill from where a student can look out and scan.
Taupae Pia is designed to provide you with opportunities to gain rich experience and knowledge that will ensure the protection of whenua as taonga tuku iho.
During this 12 month full-time programme you will gain knowledge in all areas of Māori land administration and how it relates to your specialist discipline, while gaining first-hand experience in:
- Trust administration
- Land-based enterprises
- Project management
- and much more…
You will be based in Te Whanganui-a-Tara but you will have the chance to walk the whenua with owners and understand the journey to tino rangatiratanga.
