Te Kete Kōnae

"Mā te mātauranga, te rangahau, me te whai mahi e ora ai te iwi". 

Whether you need advice, study assistance, or a warm and inviting space to relax, you will find it at Te Kete Kōnae, our Māori and Pacific support centre.

Te Kete Kōnae (TKK) utilises the best practices (Māori and Pacific) to engage with students and staff on their learning journey at Wintec. Our friendly team offers a range of services, including academic and pastoral support. We focus on a holistic approach that acknowledges the physical, spiritual, mental, and whānau dynamics of a person as a whole.

Our goal is to ensure our learning environment, student support initiatives, and teaching and learning practices meet the educational needs of our Māori and Pacific learners.

We encourage students to involve themselves in the many activities and events that Te Kete Kōnae holds throughout the year.
