Funding & Scholarships

Māori and Pasifika Trades Training (MPTT) programme

Māori and Pacific people only make up two percent of the technology sector. We want to change that.

We have a number of scholarships specifically for Māori and Pacific candidates aged 16 to 40 for our Full Stack Web Developer Accelerator.

These scholarships are sponsored by Auckland Council’s The Southern Initiative. Auckland is currently experiencing a demand for skilled tradespeople and that demand is expected to grow. The programme is a central government initiative to assist Māori and Pasifika candidates, aged 16 to 40, to:

1. gain qualifications through training and apprenticeships

2. secure sustainable employment with opportunities for progression.

The programme is based on close collaboration with an employer consortium.
