Rangi Parauri Training - Becoming a Mataora

The Rangi Parauri package is designed to meet the needs of individuals, teams and organisations who work as practitioners in helping professions and want to become a Mataora (change agent).

Mataora develop their own pukenga (skills) by embedding the Mahi a Atua principles in their lives. Because they prioritise oranga whakapapa (bringing our stories to life) a Mataora is trained to share pūrākau with whānau to reconnect whānau to their own stories.

Training involves

  • 80 hours of lesson time in person and online
  • Supervision via zoom weekly for a month following the a-tinana wānanga
  • Facilitated by several Mataora
  • Creativity and fun is an essential part of our wānanga
  • Moko artists and romiromi/mirimiri practitioners will be available to engage with during our wānanga
  • Support from a team of Mataora with Mahi a Atua facilitation expertise. These experienced practitioners are present to guide discussion, foster peer connection and provide feedback on your assignments.

Delivery format

Phase 1: online mahi-a-kaenga for two weeks
Phase 2: 5 day intensive wānanga
Phase 3: 4 weekly wānanga via zoom
