« Back to Kaupapa Māori
Kaupapa Māori is a learning area rich in Te Ao Māori skills, knowledge and topics. There is a wide variety of kaupapa to explore and engage in, and ample opportunity to connect learning from a Māori context to other subjects offered at Te Kura.
Kaupapa Māori offers eleven main subjects as listed below, and the opportunity to explore more than 80 kaupapa within those subjects.
Learning can be tailored to suit ākonga at all levels of the curriculum, from primary and intermediate to NCEA Levels 1–3.
Ākonga are supported by kaiako, kaimanaaki, whānau and hapori to select pathways of learning relevant to their aspirations, career pathway or interests and passions. Ākonga are encouraged to link with their local area experts, online communities and whānau who have skills and experience to guide them through these learning kaupapa.
For many ākonga, including young adult and adult learners, there are no fees for Kaupapa Māori courses. Please see our Fees page for further information.
This course is offered in partnership with the Hetet School of Māori Art. You will learn skills, knowledge and understanding associated with traditional weaving and the art of taniko as taught by Veranoa Hetet and her whānau. This course is taught in the same way that Veranoa would teach you if you were learning with her in person in her studio.
No prior learning needed but interest, passion and determination are desirable. This course is not available to Adult enrolments.
