"We will fashion our own pathway to achieve equitable outcomes for our learners”

Wintec | Te Pūkenga is a Tumu, a mooring post to which learners secure their waka to for a time.  The Tumu ensures our ākonga / learners’ journey is successful, where they achieve their aspirations.

Once the ākonga has added to their waka what they need, they unhitch their waka from the Tumu returning to their whānau, hapū, iwi, employers, and the wider community to share their wealth of skills and knowledge.
