The National Office in Aotearoa New Zealand shares its Māori name with the New Zealand National
Committee – also known as Tu Te Akaaka Roa. 

The Aotearoa New Zealand staff provide administrative support to Tu Te Akaaka Roa – The New Zealand National Committee (NZNC), the New Zealand Training Committee, as well as the wider range of Aotearoa New Zealand Faculty and Section Committees and the Vocational Education Advisory Body (VEAB). 

Support provided to Aotearoa New Zealand-based Committees encompasses external relations, internal and external policy, internal and external Aotearoa New Zealand communications, and strategic directions. 

Tu Te Akaaka Roa is committed to the Treaty of Waitangi; this commitment is reflected in this Committee’s and each member’s practice as well as through in the wider mahi (work) undertaken in Aotearoa. The Te Kaunihera (Māori Health Committee) works alongside the Tu Te Akaaka Roa in these efforts. Supported by staff in Melbourne with input from the NZ National Office, Te Kaunihera, also benefits from the experience, wisdom and leadership of Kaumātua, Ms Moe Milne.
