Teaching - Anamata

By: Anamata  06-Dec-2011

The Tūhoe world view is the frame of reference for our teaching programmes at Te Pū Wānanga o Anamata.  Graduates will be competent and confident educational practitioners who can contribute to the emotional, spiritual and intellectual growth of children, irrespective of their status, culture or abilities.  They will be equipped to address the inequities faced in education, particularly by Māori children, and join the challenge to provide appropriate and effective learning.  Their knowledge of te reo Māori me ōna tikanga ō Tūhoe will enable them to operate and contribute positively both to the Māori-medium and mainstream school environment.

Te Pū Wānanga o Anamata is committed to maintaining a uniquely Tūhoe – Māori world view by providing teachers of excellence in the language, who can also intellectually engage their pupils in dialogue regarding all things Māori in the context of the past, present and future world. 

Tohu Ako Paetahi: Mā Te Reo has been designed specifically to contribute to effective learning environments in a Tūhoe context, and in using whakapapa, whānaungatanga, Tūhoetanga, te reo me ona tikanga.   Anamata in offering this degree programme, is taking ownership of the challenge by producing quality teachers who use the medium of te reo Māori as the medium of instruction and incorporate cultural experience or tikanga-a-iwi into the language learning context.

Graduates of the Teacher Aide Certificate have the opportunity to progress into the degree or start their career as Teacher Aides in kaupapa Māori school.

Social Work - Anamata

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. W?nanga o Anamata, we develop social educators in response to wh?nau, hap. Our parameters for iwi social practice are ng.


te reo maori degree, maori language courses, te reo, tuhoe, tuhoe reo

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.



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.
