Whakapiki Ake Project


The WAP team from Auckland University visited our College today, meeting with 11 of our students who may be thinking of a career in health and ideally interested in taking Applied Sciences (Biology, Chemistry, Physics), Maths and English. The presentation focused on academic pathways to a career in health.

The Whakapiki Ake Project is a recruitment programme that actively engages with rangatahi Māori enrolled in secondary schools to promote health as a career and entry into Faculty of Medical and Health Sciences’ professional programmes. WAP operates within a kaupapa Māori framework with students from Year 9 to first year tertiary study.
