I am currently enrolling in my Master of Education degree while I remain at work as a Principal at Te Wharekura o Huiarau, how am I able to take advantage of your ANZ Graduate Program. I am of Tuhoe descent as well or are you strictly limiting yourselves to Ngati Porou registrations only. Look forward to your response
