What is the Māori Cadetship Programme?

The TupuToa Cadetship Programme in association with Te Puni Kokiri. Ministry of Māori Development empowers rangatahi Māori to achieve their professional goals in the workplace, whilst highlighting the mana of connection to their identity, their whānau, hapū and iwi.
