Kua whakakaha ake tēnei o ngā kura ā Anamata i ahau i roto i ōku mahi akoako I te taha ki te whanaungatanga, te manaakitanga te aroha tētahi ki tētahi. Ko te whakahau hoki I ahau me taku reo Tūhoe kia kōrerohia. “Ko te reo te waka kawe I te mātauranga”. Ko tōku reo Tūhoe tōku ahurea tōku tūāpapa, tōku taiao e ora ai ahau i ngā rā anamata.

I tohua e au ko Te Pū Wānanga o Anamata, hei wānanga ako mōku, nā te mea he wānanga mō tātau na uri whakaheke ō Tūhoe.

Kia āhei hoki ahau ki te whiwhi tohu kaiako, hei whakaako i ō tātau tamariki, kia whāngaia te reo, te mita o te reo o Tūhoe. Nā reira “He Tūhoe ahau, nō Tūhoe ahau, ko Tūhoe ahau” I runga I ēnei kōrero he wānanga nō Tūhoe hoki tēnei.

Te Tohu o Te Reo Māori (Bachelor of Te Reo Māori) Graduate

Rawe kē ngā kaiako me o rātau pūkenga ki te whakatakoto ai ngā kaupapa. Pai ki te noho ki tēna, ki tēna o ngā marae, ki te hīkoi i te whenua o Te Urewera me ngā haerenga. He pai ki au ki te ako i raro i tēnei momo akoranga.

Nā ngā mahi i Anamata, ka mōhio tonu te whakahirahiratanga ki te mau i to tātau reo rangatira, ki te mōhio ko wai au, ki te tū i tēnei ao hurihuri.

Diploma in Applied Māori Health Coexisting Disorders Graduate

Anamata provides all ākonga with the opportunity to gain mastery within indigenous and clinical paradigms.  There is nowhere in the world I can learn the healing, clinical modalities, and frameworks of my iwi.  My qualifications have allowed me to gain access to Postgraduate Study, where I am working towards full registration with DAPAANZ (Addiction Practitioners Association Aotearoa NZ).

Diploma in Applied Māori Health Coexisting Disorders Graduate

I chose to study at Anamata to learn a more holistic way of treatment for people with co-existing disorders and become familiar with Māori values and treatment approaches. Having the three-day wānanga per month made it easy to accommodate my other commitments. 

Doing this qualification has enhanced my chances of gaining entry into the clinical psychology programme and provides more chances into the employment market. Being a Tau-iwi from Hungary, I am very proud to have been given the opportunity to have studied with my Māori peers and excellent tutors.

National Certificate in Social Service Work in Suicide Intervention Graduate

“The suicide intervention studies offered by Anamata which I completed in 2016, has assisted with my career immensely. Anamata’s Suicide Intervention Programme has helped me understand the person who suffers a personal crisis in their life and the challenges of how to deal with it We need to be more aware, especially among our Māori whanau, and start listening more and noticing; these are the essential tools that give others the space and room to breathe and share. Time is of the essence, just say “Hi, how are things with you?” simple and meaningful to someone else. People will listen. I’m employed working with whanau, customers and staff.  I now recognise the signs of distress in individuals that enter our building. It’s not being judgemental or discriminatory, it’s about being real. We can do a lot to help someone out there, even if it’s just one; it’s the intervening before the inevitable that counts” Mauri Ora.

National Certificate in Social Service Work in Suicide Intervention Graduate

I chose a kaupapa Māori Suicide Intervention Course to better understand what drives suicide. I wanted to learn for myself and to be in a better position to work with tangata whaiora knowing how to keep people safe. I have learnt so much from this course.  It was so inspirational that I like to put most of what I learnt into my everyday practice.

Neke atu i te tekau tau au e tiaki tamariki ana. Tino harikoa au, kua tae au ki roto o Anamata, kua whiwhi hoa hou, whiwhi mātauranga hou. Tua atu i tērā, kua timara te mahi a aku tamariki i roto i te kura. Me mutu te kata ki ētahi kei te raru i roto i te reo, me awhi atu. Ko tēnei te wānanga tuatahi kua kite au e whakahaere ana i ngā mātauranga a tōku iwi o Ngāi Tūhoe, e whakaara ana i tō tātau Tūhoetanga. Tau kē!

Juanita Jacob

Diploma in Applied Māori Health Coexisting Disorders Graduate

I chose Anamata because the studies were held locally. The coursework had  DAPAANZ competencies which lead to becoming a registered practitioner. The learning environment was very supportive and kaupapa Māori focused.  I have become a more competent practitioner at work and have been able to apply the theory learnt in dealing with tangata whaiora suffering from CEP. My circle of networks has greatly increased which has enhanced my employment opportunities.

Te Pū Wānanga o Anamata provided me with an opportunity to study in an environment that was conducive to my learning style. These studies enhanced my current skills and knowledge base, with multiple styles of learning, quality of education and a wide variety of topics. My strengths increased in regard to leadership, decision making, quality support to my peers and I am in a better position to make change. I feel confident to challenge the norm in my work, push the boundaries and go outside the square.

National Certificate in Social Service Work in Suicide Intervention Graduate

Anamata has a creditable qualification, good reputation and my work suggested I undertake this study. The good blend of learning with the theory, practical and group work made the learning very inspirational and the tutor is so knowledgeable, she knew everything related to our course subject. I can now speak to issues of concern with my service users with more skills and tools I have gained from these studies. I understand now how early childhood memories can affect how people will be as adults in the future and how we need to change the negative statistic held especially for Māori.
