He Tukutuku Koiora is a tikanga-led, future-focused Māori governance programme that provides a pathway to accelerate talented Māori professionals into tomorrow’s governance leadership roles.
The two-and-a-half-year programme encompasses both online and in-person learning modules, manaaki support and mentoring, and a capstone 18-month associate directorship placement.
Through a supportive learning environment that’s embedded in tikanga Māori, the programme aims to grow the next generation of future Māori leaders and strengthen their leadership skillset so that they are resilient, capable, connected, critically minded, and forward-thinking in their approach.
With the increasing demand for values-based leadership, He Tukutuku Koiora ensures our next wave of Māori governance practitioners have the expertise, guidance, and support to be effective governors and leaders of tomorrow.
As amonuku (Associate Directors) complete the programme, they will join Te Pūtea Whakatupu’s growing alumni network and form the largest cohort of Māori professionals in leadership and governance roles within Aotearoa.
Please note, applications for our Amonuku (Associate Directors) and expressions of interest for host board organisations are now closed, join the pānui list to be notified of future intakes.
