TupuToa Internship Programme

The TupuToa Internship Programme is a pathway that provides professional opportunities for Māori and Pacific tertiary students in corporate, government and community organisations.

We do this by securing internships for tertiary students with our partner organisations.

The internship is not only a Summer placement but includes workshops and support before and during the internship.


Why we do this mahi?

We do this because:

  • Māori and Pacific peoples comprise roughly 27% of the national population (higher in Auckland), yet are largely invisible in corporate New Zealand and especially so in leadership positions.

  • Māori and Pacific peoples also represent a younger population; they will make up a significant proportion of the future workforce.

  • Many of our students are the first in their families to undertake tertiary study and with guidance and pastoral care they are better equipped to succeed in a corporate environment.
