Kia Noho Rangatira Ai Tātou is a unique education programme that was developed by Te Pou and the Disabled Persons Assembly. The programme puts human rights for disabled people and the Disability Convention into a New Zealand cultural context. This 10-hour online workshop series will be held over four 2.5 hour modules.

The aim of the online workshop is to increase participants understanding of the Disability Convention and Human Rights, and to apply this understanding to practical situations. It is applicable to participants personal and professional lives.

This 10-hour online workshop series will be held in four 2.5 hour modules, starting Tuesday 15th February 2022 from 9.30am to 12pm and continuing on Thursday 17th February, Tuesday 22nd February and Thursday 24th February 2022. Each module will be held at the same time, 9.30am to 12pm with a short break.

We ask that you respect the kaupapa of Kia Noho Rangatira Ai Tātou and attend all four webinar modules.
