‘Te Kākano’ is an introductory cultural competency and development programme aimed at creating a safe space for participants to engage with Te Ao Māori / The Māori World-View.
The term ‘Te Kākano’ translates to ‘The Seed’ and this programme symbolises the planting of a seed of learning, supporting participants growth and confidence to implement Te Ao Māori learnings into the workplace.
The programme was designed specifically for organisations large and small, that are committed to creating a meaningful culture shift through the integration of Te Ao Māori perspectives and practices into the way their organisation operates. We designed ‘Te Kākano’ with all levels of the organisation in mind, to ensure all staff felt supported to authentically engage and uplift their own cultural confidence and further enhance workplace cultural capability.
We deliver the programme in-house where we come into your organisation, marae-based or hybrid (online). The programme spans across six two-hour sessions, however, the length of time for each session can be adapted to suit your organisation.
