We're excited to announce that as of 1 July 2020, Te Pou o te Whakaaro Nui will be called Te Pou. We have a fresh new look and a new logo that you will begin to see more often. Our website will be rebuilt over the coming months, to be more focused on ease of access to our resources and knowledge. Read more here.
Te Pou is a hub of workforce and leadership development for disabled people, whānau and the disability workforce.
Let's get real: Disability is a framework that describes the essential attitudes, values, skills and knowledge needed by anyone working alongside disabled people and whānau, to assist in people attaining their aspirations.
Disabled people often have poorer health compared to non-disabled people.
Research shows that people can be supported to access and stick with training when the right elements are in place.
Disabled people make great employees, particularly in disability support services.
