The International Federation of Social Workers recognises that social work originates variously from humanitarian, religious and democratic ideals and philosophies; and that it has universal application to meet human needs arising from personal-societal interactions, and to develop human potential.

Professional social workers are dedicated to service for the welfare and self-fulfilment of human beings; to the development and disciplined use of scientific knowledge regarding human behaviour and society; to the development of resources to meet individual, group, national and international needs and aspirations; to the enhancement and improvement of the quality of life of people; and to the achievement of social justice.

At Te Pū Wānanga o Anamata, we develop social educators in response to whānau, hapū and iwi and their environs.  Our parameters for iwi social practice are ngā tikanga and kawa; the underpinning framework for understanding relevant and constructive social well being for whānau, hapū and iwi.

W?nanga o Anamata is committed to maintaining and promoting this uniquely M?ori world view by providing educational opportunities which have Te Reo as their core focus. The very way in which the people organise their grammar and the words they use in order to talk about the things that interest them. It not only encapsulates the customs and usages of the culture, it also carries the spirit of the people to whom it belongs.


Teaching - Anamata

W?nanga o Anamata is committed to maintaining a uniquely T?hoe – M?ori world view by providing teachers of excellence in the language, who can also intellectually engage their pupils in dialogue regarding all things M?ori in the context of the past, present and future world.



By providing a tertiary institution underpinned by these two essential elements, the leaders of Anamata seek to provide T?hoe with authentic courses. According to tradition, Te Maunga (the Mountain) and Hine-p?kohu-rangi – brought forth the people known as Ng?i T?hoe. The power and prestige comes from T?hoe. T?hoe te mana me te rangatiratanga. The land comes from Toi and P?tiki.
