Te Puni Kōkiri works for Māori to be skilled, learned and innovative.
Increasing Māori skills will increase incomes and will enable Māori to have greater control over their lives and more freedom to carve out their own paths with fewer constraints on their choices.
Skills and learning benefits individuals, their whānau and communities, and in turn, the New Zealand economy.
We look at how Māori can acquire skills and knowledge, with an emphasis on increasing Māori achievement of higher-level qualifications.
