Graduate Profile

Deriving from the overarching vision, aims and values of Te Aratika Academy, an aspirational profile of a Te Aratika Graduate has been established.

Our Te Aratika Graduate is a young man who has a positive sense of well-being, is confident and competent, and is culturally connected as Māori. These interdependent competencies combine to create a firm platform from which young men can step into the world of work, and in their role as family and community members with confidence and competence.
