Awanuiarangi aims at Auckland market
Whakatane-based Te Whare Wananga o Awanuiarangi today opened a branch in Manukau to target the country’s largest education market.
Acting chief executive Wiremu Doherty says there could be as many as 1000 full time equivalent students studying at the Lambie Drive campus within five years.
He says Awanuiarangi would look to develop targeted programmes in partnership with South Auckland communities and to work with a number of existing education providers.
Programmes for next year include Bachelor of Education, Bachelor of Humanities, Bachelor of Maori Performing Arts, Te Reo me ona Tikanga, Tourism and Masters of Maori Studies and Masters of Indigenous Studies, Masters of Maori Studies and Doctor of Philosophy.
Awanuiarangi is also partnering with the Maori organics authority Te Waka Kai Ora (New Zealand Maori Organics Authority) to develop a new qualification in Kai Oranga and food sustainability.
