“Makū anō tōku ara e para kia eke panuku”

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

Wintec is a Tumu, a mooring post to which learners secure their waka to for a time.  The Tumu ensures the learners’ journey is successful, where they achieve their aspirations. Once the learner has added to their waka with what they need, the learner unhitches their waka from the Tumu returning to their whānau, hapū, iwi, employers and the wider community to share their wealth of skills and knowledge.
