Te Ara Tipu means ‘Path of Growth’ in te reo Māori, and is a new programme offered by the CAPEs to support tertiary students on a multi-year journey of professional growth.
Te Ara Tipu will provide members with semi-personalised learning and growth opportunities, leadership training, networking events, and other resources to support them in striving for their dreams.
Members will join the CAPE whānau and become a tight-knit group. They’ll not only benefit from opportunities to learn and grow, but will be encouraged to support each other and explore ways to give back to their communities.
