The programme exists simply to connect Māori tertiary students from Te Moana-a-Toi to high-value work opportunities across the Bay of Plenty – a place where they will contribute into the future.
He aha te tikanga o to tātou ingoa?
Toi represents the descendants of Toi (a shared tupuna of the Bay of Plenty), and Ki Tua means into the future. Toi Ki Tua signifies the descendants of Toi moving into the future with precision and confidence.
Through Toi Kai Rawa, Toi Ki Tua consists of a governance board and project implementation team lead by Toi Kai Rawa’s Kaihautū. Toi Kai Rawa's Kaihautū and board retain oversight of the Toi Ki Tua programme.
Toi Kai Rawa's board of trustees is comprised of experienced and highly skilled individuals who have considerable knowledge and contacts within our Māori communities and in key industries throughout the Bay of Plenty and Aotearoa, New Zealand.
