Last week we arranged for our NRI HCSS Kaiāwhina to complete the New Zealand certificate in Health and Wellbeing level 2 (NZQA), this programme is aimed to introduce our kaiāwhina who work in the Health and Disability or aged support sectors to skills and knowledge required to provide quality support within their role. Ngāti Ranginui Kaiāwhina have the opportunity to develop their knowledge and skill base through in-house training and on the job mentoring through a range of nationally recognized certifications.
The advantage to our Iwi organisation is a skilled and competent workforce which means quality services and whanau living with disabilities are living safer and longer in their own homes.
Kāore te kūmara e kōrero mō tōna ake reka - The kūmara does not say how sweet he is.
Under the auspice of this whakataukī our Māori leaders have been recognised by their peers and loved ones for their contributions, service, vision, dedication and expertise towards constructive change and improvement to Māori health. We invite you to journey through the words of support that have been prepared for each of the leaders to showcase the width and breadth of Māori leaders of today who influence and contribute to Māori health and wellbeing.
Be inspired. Aspire.
Ki a koutou katoa ngā ngākau aroha, ngā raukura, kia ū ki tēnei kaupapa o te hauora Māori, tēnei te mihi ki a koutou!
