Crown partners with Te Puna Whānau Ora Network Alliance to develop Healthcare and Wellbeing Programmes
Crown Institute of Studies (CIS) is proud to announce that we are partnering with Te Puna Whānau Ora Network Alliance (TWONA) to develop and deliver Healthcare and Wellbeing programmes.
As a tertiary education provider that serves many Maori students, we fully acknowledge the Māori Values of family, communitarianism and collectivism. In view of the COVID-19 pandemic, CIS realises the dire needs of healthcare and wellbeing training; not just at the vocational level, but also at the personal and the familial level. We believe having knowledge and training in this area will benefit our students in all aspects of their lives, and the partnership with TWONA is a significant step towards reaching this goal.
The health and wellbeing programmes will be co-owned by both organisations; CIS will be responsible for its overall development while TWONA will focus on the development and the delivery of the Whānau Ora component.
Programme development at the foundational level is currently underway and developmental work on higher-level programmes will commence within the next 2 years.
