This specialised New Zealand tourism training package is blends Maori culture and Maori concepts with practical tourism skills.

The training programme, worth over $500, provides a uniquely New Zealand approach to staff development and customer service through understanding the visitor’s desire to experience Maori culture, language, stories and traditions.

It is ideal for New Zealand tourism operators and their staff to gain a base knowledge of Māori customs, place names and history.

The staff member who undertakes the training will earn while they learn, gain a national certificate and improve their tourism career as well as benefiting the business.

Paul Fuimaono from Indigenous Journeys says, “This product is a wonderful treasure. It is a great opportunity for both the trainee and the employer to actively create a developmental culture within the business.”
