No matter where you are in life, we can journey with you to help you achieve your goals and the aspirations of your whānau.
Here at Arai Te Uru Kōkiri Training Centre (Kōkiri), we offer a range of of services and courses to help you learn, grow and thrive. Based in South Dunedin, we are in the heart of our community, here for all.
We understand everyone is on their own path, their own journey. Often let down by systems and services. We are here to help you navigate your own path - in partnership with you and your whānau.
Explore our core services - many fully-funded (free) - that provide support through a range of situations that life can throw at us. From getting ready for a job, to learning skills to improve hauora (health) and nutrition for your whānau. From getting you through a crisis, to helping you achieve goals and aspirations.
Our whānau-first approach means you are not alone. Learn about how we can help here on our website or get in touch and have a kōrero with us about your specific situation and goals.
We offer two main services; Our Navigate services are facilitated by our Navigators and your programme is guided by your situation and goals. Our Learn services are courses to teach valuable skills, earn a qualification and give you options.
Open to all, this NZQA qualification is for people who wish to work with Māori and whānau in the development of a whānau-centred approach to support hauora and wellbeing. Graduating could be the start of a great career in support work or give you knowledge and skills to support your own whānau.
This service is for anyone who needs support getting through a current situation. Based on te whare tapa whā, this personalised service meets you where you’re at and navigate support and services that are available. We’re here to lift your wairua and journey with you.
It's our kaupapa Māori approach to all that we do that makes all the difference. From how we teach, to how we help you navigate your own path. We are here to support your journey - meeting you where you are today.Kōrero with us
