E ngā mana, e ngā reo, e ngā karanga taha maha o te motu, tēnei te korokī ki te hunga kua whāngaihia ki ngā kaimārō o te ao Māori, o te ao takiwā. Tōia mai tō waka kia whītikiria ki te tumu o te Kuratini o Waikato. Tōia mai! 

Wintec have made significant inroads as an organisation to better understand how to achieve better outcomes for Māori. We know that we can see greater uplift for our tauira when they see themselves in the environment that they are learning in.  Although it’s not the only place that we see Māori culture, the marae is a bastion point for the maintenance and revitalisation of tikanga and te reo Māori. We are interested in hearing from people with a strong desire to support work towards equitable outcomes for Māori and mana-enhancing Te Tiriti o Waitangi partnerships.
