The Process
The TupuToa selection process has been carefully designed to provide you with the opportunity to demonstrate your suitability for the programme and prepare you for success in this and any other selection process.

This is a chance for the team at TupuToa to connect with you over the phone, fill in any gaps in your application, as well as an opportunity for you to ask questions.

2. Intern Ready Workshop - Commenced in April
This is an hour workshop focused on building confidence and CV & interview preparation to support your application to TupuToa and other organisations.
If you are eligible and have completed an intern ready workshop you will be invited to attend a Discovery Centre.

3. Discovery Centre - Commence in May
This is an opportunity for you to showcase your skills in a mana enhancing environment. The half day will include an interview, team exercise and connecting with TupuToa alumni.
