Our communities flourish when Pacific people have access to work or learning opportunities. We want to ensure Pacific people have the right tools, education, training and employment opportunities to succeed
Tupu Aotearoa connects Pacific people with local providers who will support you to access work or learning opportunities on your journey to employment, further training or study.
