Cadetships

Te Puni Kōkiri has been delivering the Cadetships programme since 2010. It is a programme that supports employers to develop, mentor, train and grow full-time permanent Māori staff in order for them to take on more senior roles within an organisation.

Through the successful long-established Cadetships programme Te Puni Kōkiri can provide up to $10,000.00 per each Māori individual (“cadet”) that you provide with at least 6 months of structured and tailored mentoring, training and development.
