Te Whāriki ā Toi translates to “The Woven Mat of Toi Rākau”. Mats are a well-known image for the weaving of knowledge and education, particular mats had special functions and some were seating in places of learning. Toi is a common ancestor to all iwi (tribes) in the Bay of Plenty and “toi” is also a word for summit, so gives an idea of the peak of achievement.
The site delivers learning for all employees of Hauora a Toi Bay of Plenty and contracted primary health care providers. A mix of mandatory, role required, and optional professional development courses all attract professional development hours. Te Whāriki ā Toi also provides access to eportfolios, using the Mahara platform.
