Our Governance

Te Pūkenga is governed by a Council and our 17 subsidiaries are governed by Boards of Directors. Together with Te Pūkenga, they must give effect to our Charter set out in the Education Act.

Our Council is informed by:

  • Komiti Māori, which represents Māori learners, whānau, iwi, hapū, communities and employers, will ensure diverse and independent Māori voices influence the development and ongoing activities of Te Pūkenga;
  • Learner Advisory Committee which represents our learners’ voices and ensures the needs of learners remain at the centre of everything we do;
  • Staff Advisory Committee which represents our staff voice with representatives from each subsidiary;
  • Te Poari Akoranga which provides strategic academic direction and leadership.

Komiti Māori, Staff Advisory Committee and Learner Advisory Committee have been established as interim bodies until the end of 2022. Permanent committees will be established for each in early 2023. More detail on each governance body is below.

Advisory Committees

Māori Advisory Committee (Komiti Māori) will represent Māori learners, their whānau, hapū and iwi, Māori employers, and Māori communities. Members of Komiti Māori are appointed by Te Pūkenga Council on the joint advice of the Chief Executive of Te Pūkenga and the Chair of Mātauranga Iwi Leaders Group. The group of experts provide Council with advice, quality assurance and critical thought leadership. They have been appointed until 31 December 2022 and will make recommendations for the terms, conditions, scope and powers of the permanent Komiti, which will be in place for 2023.

Komiti Māori representatives 
  • Bentham Ohia – Ngāi Te Rangi, Ngāti Pūkenga, Ngāti Ranginui, Ngāti Te Roro o te Rangi, Te Āti Awa, Ngāti Rārua, Ngai Tahu
  • Dr Teorongonui Josie Keelan – Ngāti Porou, Ngāti Awa, Tūhoe
  • Glenda Taituha – Waikato, Maniapoto
  • Te Pūoho Katene – Ngāti Toa, Ngāti Tama, Ngāti Whatua
  • Jasmine Te Hira – Te Rarawa, Ngāpuhi
  • Dr Ramari Raureti (Staff Committee Representative) – Te Arawa, Te Whakatōhea

The Staff Advisory Committee will represent our staff voice in the development and review of key strategic matters with our Te Pūkenga Council. The current Interim Committee will also be tasked with designing and testing the Committee framework and processes, ahead of creating a permanent Staff Advisory Committee starting in 2023. Each Te Pūkenga ITP subsidiary has elected a representative to the Staff Committee, and in turn they have elected two Co-Chairs, as well as representatives through to Te Poari Akoranga and the Māori Advisory Committee. Heath Sawyer has been appointed as the Committee representative who will sit on Te Pūkenga Council. Elections for a permanent committee will take place in the second half of 2022.
