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.
Welcome. Here you will find information about how to apply for the Te Pou disability grants, including information and what type of learning activities we support.
Here at Te Pou we lead a range of initiatives to address workforce and leadership development needs for disabled people, whānau and the disability workforce.
Te Pou administers grants that are made available by the Ministry of Health (MoH). MoH sets the priority areas for funding.
People who receive Individualised Funding (IF) and people registered to participate in the Mid Central disability support system transformation roll-out, can apply for our grants.
You can apply for these grants, for your support staff, in March and September every year.
Are available to help with the cost of your support staff taking part in NZQA training that is approved by the MoH.
Training grants can only be used for MoH approved qualifications.
Training grants, for your support staff, can be applied for at any time of the year. The funding is available until allocated funding is spent.
