The Digital Marae Wānanga course is designed to help Marae Trustees (Kaitiaki) acquire the knowledge and confidence to operate internet and the Audio/Video bundled equipment supplied by Spark and use digital technology to help their marae thrive.
This course is being provided to ensure Trustees can confidently operate their digital technology so they can connect with whānau, hapu, iwi, and other stakeholders from their marae. This will provide technology learning opportunities to ensure Trustees are able to use digital technology to operate their marae effectively.
The training is made up of 8 workshops at a 3-day noho at designated marae and will likely be held on a Friday to Sunday starting and finishing mid-day.
Each noho will be held at a designated marae to cover a rohe where equipment supplied by Spark has already been installed.
Marae Trustees who attend are encouraged to train their other trustees. There will be an online version of the course that Trustees can access post course once this resource is fully developed.

This course is designed for Marae Trustees (Kaitiaki) so they can operate the digital equipment supplied and installed at their marae.
The digital marae training is provided for marae trustees, first and foremost. It is expected that trustees will be responsible for the devices and their management at each marae so this training is critical to the success of the connectivity package.
We understand that rangatahi are an important part of the future of marae including the uptake of the new digital devices and connectivity opportunities presented by the packages that have been installed.
For the wānanga, we could allow for a couple of rangatahi to attend, if there is spare capacity. After registrations officially close, we will advise if any there is any additional spaces available for rangatahi. Please note that all wānanga attendees would need to be over the age of 18.
The Digital Marae Wānanga training is only available to trustees who have been invited to attend because their marae has received the digital connectivity package. Each marae should have nominated a trustee representative to attend the training on their behalf.
Yes, marae trustees that have had their package approved, but not installed yet, are still able to attend the training in advance of the package being installed at you marae.
No, the training is free for trustees. The NZ Government has funded this training programme through the Provincial Growth Fund.
A registration email invitation will be sent to the nominated trustee contacts supplied to TWOA by MBIE.
