Awhi Tauira team is here to help!

One of the immediate benefits to students is whanaungatanga (sense of belonging) that is always present at Awhi Tauira. Support includes academic support as well as support for personal issues which may impact a student’s ability to learn and complete their study.

The Awhi Tauira Student Support team:

  • Provides academic tertiary skills training and support to our tauira 
  • Helps tauira to become independent learners so they can complete their programme.
  • Offers confidential pastoral care to tauira
