Murihiku Regeneration and the Southern Institute of Technology, joining forces to build a brighter future for Southland
Murihiku Regeneration has signed a collaboration agreement with the Southern Institute of Technology (SIT).
The agreement will ensure that the Murihiku Regeneration’s Te Ara Aukati Kore (pathways without barriers) approach to building capability across our four pou (social, economic, cultural and environment) is realised.
Project lead for Te Ara Aukati Kore, Ivan Hodgetts said,
“With SIT’s help we will build opportunities to develop capability that are responsive, and aligned to the aspirations of our people.”
“This is an exciting step in our work to build a community in which everyone has an opportunity and the support needed to both see a bright future, and have equitable access to the education and training they need.”
The agreement is the first step in the burgeoning relationship between Murihiku Regeneration and SIT, with both continuing to fine tune how they will deliver better education and training pathways for Southland.
Over the next few months, the focus will be on enhancing the secondary tertiary partnerships that support the transition of rangatahi from school for further education and training. In addition, there will be a strong focus on the needs of adults in our community, and how to better enable lifelong learning.
Terry Nicholas, Murihiku Regeneration Programme Director said,
“This is another example of Murihiku Regeneration building and strengthening relationships in the community. I am proud of the work done by Ivan and the team and want to thank SIT for their support in our continuing work to break down barriers for our rangatahi”.
