Covid Policy

In the event of COVID-19 alert levels preventing the 'Intensive training' from being held, Te Kurahuna Ltd will reserve the right to hold that component of the training at a later date. Te Kurahuna Ltd may reconfigure any part of the training to be a virtual delivery. Should a decision be made to deliver the 'Intensive training' virtually, trainees will have extended access to the pūrākau offered in the training.

In the interest of all trainees' wellbeing, Te Kurahuna Ltd reserves the right to determine IF trainings will be cancelled, postponed or rescheduled.

Te Kurahuna Ltd is committed to making sure 'you' receive your training. It is important to us that we all feel safe and held when facing the uncertainty of the world we live in. We appreciate that we are already in a crisis with inequity and racism so we do not want to pause in the delivery of this kaupapa and will work hard to deliver the highest quality training within the parameters available.

If you develop Covid-19 symptoms or are a household contact of someone with COVID-19, get tested immediately. If these symptoms develop within 5 days prior to the commencement of the intensive component, we will need evidence of a negative Rapid Antigen Test (RATs) prior to your arrival.

Covid-19 vaccination recommendations for ā-tinana (in person) training

Where our training is ā-tinana, Te Kurahuna Ltd recommends you are fully vaccinated against COVID-19, including 6 monthly boosters.

COVID-19 Response Plan

Our Commitment
As of August 15 2023, the Government has lifted mandatory COVID public health measures due to a decrease in the risk of contracting COVID. However, recommendations remain in place. It is crucial to note that while the risk may be lower, COVID remains active in our community. At Te Kurahuna, we are fully committed to minimising its spread and ensuring the well-being of our people and wider community.

Our Objective
Our goal is simple: to keep everyone healthy and safe by minimising the spread of COVID. We aim to foster safe and respectful learning environments while maintaining transparent communication and adhering to our usual health and safety controls.

What We're Doing
We're taking proactive steps to keep our events safe for all attendees. This includes ensuring face masks, hand sanitizer, COVID testing stations and teams are readily available to respond to any positive cases during our activities.

If You Test Positive
If you test positive for COVID, please refrain from attending our ā-tinana (in person) training. Instead, follow the guidelines provided by the Ministry of Health, which include isolating for at least 5 days from the onset of symptoms or a positive test result. Please see Ministry of Health guidelines if you require further information.

Our Mahi a Atua Principles
Throughout this journey, we will be guided by our Mahi a Atua principles. We will ensure transparent communication, provide opportunities for collective discussion, and use feedback to navigate our path forward collectively.

Your Responsibility
If you become unwell during the wānanga, we ask that you prioritise the safety of whānau, hapu, and iwi by ending your participation in the ā-tinana wānanga immediately. Unfortunately, providing a refund isn't feasible in this situation. Nevertheless, our primary focus remains on ensuring everyone's health and well-being.
