Mahi Rawe fono

Te Pou and Blueprint for Learning hosted a fono to share how we can support you and your staff with a variety of resources and training.

In this fono, our presenters provided information from their area of expertise (disability, addiction and mental health) and demonstrated how they would support professional development should you choose to engage in full training.

This fono included a sample from the following programmes:
