Learning Te Reo is a great way to honour the language and identity. History and language go hand-in hand and now is the time for a revival, bringing Māori heritage to the forefront of Aotearoa.

Our course is put together by one of New Zealand's leading Māori language academics, Dr. Rāpata Wiri. He has successfully taught many large Government departments, companies and city councils and this course is the culmination of over 15 years of research and teaching by him.

A world-class, fully automated online platform with over 80 recorded video tutorials, 57 recorded live classes reinforcing each tutorial, 50 online quizzes and assessments and an audio transcription assessment tool which allows you to record, practice and perfect your pronunciation through the portal.
With our accelerated learning system, you can be speaking the Māori language in no time!

How will this course advance my career?

Learning Cloud programs have been developed in response to industry demand and are specifically designed to equip graduates with work-ready skills. Each participant will be trained and assessed in theory and in practical tasks and Real-world exercises are used throughout the program.

Studies prove, time and again, that college-educated workers earn more than those with only a high school qualification. College graduates often enjoy additional benefits, including greater job opportunities and promotions. Though the proof for greater earning potential exists, some might wonder whether the cost of the education warrants the overall expense in the long run.

College Graduate vs. Non-Graduate Earnings

The National Centre for Education Statistics (NCES) analyses employee earnings data biennially, according to education level. Findings indicate that workers with a qualification earn significantly more than those without. Since the mid-1980s, education has played a large part in potential wages, with bachelor's degree holders taking home an average of 66% more than those with only a high school diploma do. While college-educated workers' wages have increased over the past two decades, those with only a high school education have seen decreases in annual salaries in the same time period (nces.ed.gov).
