Register interest for Aronui training courses

23 December 2022

Mā te kimi ka kite, mā te kite ka mōhio, mā te mōhio ka mārama. 
Seek and discover, discover and know, know and become enlightened.

As part of our commitment to integrate Te Ao Māori and mātauranga Māori (Māori knowledge) into everything we do, we will be running four Aronui training courses in partnership with Māpuna Consultants starting in February 2023.

The courses are open to all Red Cross people – members, those who volunteer their time, and employees.

The training is one of the early deliverables of our Te Ao Māori programme. The courses are based on a pilot training undertaken in early 2022.

About the Aronui training courses

Participants will receive a total of 15 hours of training on three kete or baskets:

  • Te Kete Aronga Māori – cosmological origins, tikanga Marae and Māori society (3.5 hours total).
  • Te Kete o Te Tiriti o Waitangi – (3.5 hours total).
  • Te Kete o Te Reo Māori – Te Reo Māori, mihi and whakataukī, waiata (8 hours total).

Each kete will involve a combination of self-driven and interactive or guided learning. To get the most out of the training for you and Red Cross, you will need to commit to all three kete.

Course dates

The first two courses will start in February and run through until April.

The second two courses will start in April and run through until June.
