Ngati Whakaue Education Endowment Trust and Sudima Hotels offer unique training scholarship

Sudima Lake Rotorua and Ngati Whakaue Education Endowment Trust offers unique leadership training programme for Ngati Whakaue descendants.

Sudima Lake Rotorua in conjunction with the Ngati Whakaue Education Endowment Trust are proud to announce a unique scholarship programme aimed at getting young Ngati Whakaue descendants into employment, leadership and training positions.

Sudima Hotels and Ngati Whakaue have worked together to provide this one-of-a-kind programme aimed at descendants obtaining qualifications in various hospitality areas including diplomas in hotel management and hospitality management and a graduate diploma in hotel management.

The eligibility requirements are for descendants of an original Owner in the Pukeroa Oruawhata Block; or descendants of one or more of the six Koromatua of Ngati Whakaue.
Applicants must (preferably) be residents in the Rotorua/Maketu District and must (preferably) have attended for at least four academic years, one of the following secondary schools in the Rotorua/Maketu District:

The criteria will allow Ngati Whakaue students wishing to be employed in the Hotel/Hospitality Industry to undertake an approved programme of study in the chosen vocation, following an initial employment period of one (1) year with Sudima Hotels.

Any tertiary training shall be with an accredited Industry Training Organisation (ITO) or an Accredited Education Provider where training and assessment is provided for a National (or local) Certificate/Diploma/Degree as agreed between the Applicant, the Board and Sudima Hotels.

With funding available for approved course fees provided by Ngati Whakaue Education Endowment Trust
Sudima Hotel Group Chief Executive Officer Sudesh Jhunjhnuwala says he is particularly looking for people with initiative, leadership qualities, attitude and a motivation to succeed in the Hospitality Industry and their desired programme of study.

“We are proud to offer up this programme for the young people of the Rotorua/Maketu District. Suitability and selection of the tertiary component will depend on performance as a Management Trainee.”

The Board and Sudima Hotels may award up to two Scholarships each year and these will be allocated by way of two parts.

The total term of each Scholarship will be up to a maximum of 6 years subject to performance and annual review by the Board and Sudima Hotels.

Ngati Whakaue Education Endowment Trust Chairman Malcolm Short says to give young maori the opportunity to work and train in their hometown in a vocation that can see them travel and work all over the world is nothing short of a miracle.

“We are delighted that the Sudima Hotel Group has worked with us to provide such a programme.”

Those interested in making an application may collect an application pack from either Nati Whakaue Education Endowment Trust or Pukeroa Oruawhata House reception or Sudima Lake Rotorua Human Resources department.
