Workshop details:
This full day workshop is specially designed as a refresher for staff in small workplaces to enable you to meet your quality standards. It aims to:
  • refresh staff knowledge in light of ongoing advances in understanding Māori-Pākehā relationships.
  • provide recent updates from Waitangi Tribunal hearings about Te Tiriti and He Wakaputanga (the Declaration of Independence).
  • help build relationships with tangata whenua Māori.
  • support staff efforts towards biculturalism.
  • encourage workplaces in their strategic planning.
The workshop is appropriate for those with little or no knowledge of the treaty, and also for those wanting to update their professional training. The workshop is popular with social and health services, local bodies and community organisations as a way of bringing together staff with diverse knowledge levels about the Treaty. Workshop activities are based on Tangata Tiriti-Treaty People: An interactive workbook on the Treaty of Waitangi (2006).

Participant handouts & Treaty posters are complimentary. Tangata Tiriti-Treaty People workbooks ($30) & Questions and Answers about the Treaty of Waitangi ($10) will be available for cash sales.
