Ngāti Koata Trust launches the Ngāti Koata Future Director (Associates) Programme – Apply Now

The Ngāti Koata Group aims to preserve and pass-on knowledge from one generation to another. As part of this process we are pleased to announce the launch of our first Ngāti Koata Future Director (Associates) programme. This process will ensure that our cultural heritage, values and goals will be passed onto future generations, and will sustain successful governance in the Ngāti Koata commercial, cultural and social arms.

The Future Director Programme is an initiative of the Ngāti Koata Group and has been developed to provide an opportunity for Ngāti Koata iwi members to learn and develop knowledge, experience and expertise in Governance.

It is a two year programme; one year with the Directors of Koata Ltd, and one year with the Ngāti Koata Trust Board. Kaumātua will also provide mentoring to our Future Directors on matters of tikanga and kawa.

Our Future Directors will work on specific projects to enhance both their own governance development, and to further the goals of our cultural and commercial entities.

The objective is to provide another learning opportunity for future leadership of Ngāti Koata, and to ensure succession planning for successful governance of our cultural and commercial interests. This programme is relevent to any governance entity such as Commercial Boards or Trust Boards, but will focus strongly on Ngāti Koata leadership aspirations. Some examples include:

  • Whānau Trusts
  • School Boards
  • Company Boards

Learning outcomes include:

  • How to read and interpret financial reports,
  • Developing partnerships with other iwi and other stakeholders
  • Developing proposals and outcomes
  • Setting and managing budgets
  • Being a responsible employer,
  • Dealing with confidential matters, and
  • All the other duties and responsibilities of being a Board Member

Our long-term goal is to provide our younger iwi members with opportunities to develop their knowledge, experience, and expertise in general governance. This will prepare our whanau for future governance appointments within our Group and other opportunities outside of our community.
