About Us

Nā tō rourou, nā taku rourou ka ora ai te iwi
With your food basket and my food basket the people will thrive

SeedsTe Ahua Consulting was born out of the concept of ‘te kakano’ meaning ‘the seed’ in nurturing the seeds of new learning.
It comes from the Māori proverb; ‘E kore au e ngaro te kākano i ruia mai i Rangiātea’, which literally translates as ‘I will never be lost, the seed which was sown from Rangiātea’.
It is envisaged that Te Ahua Consulting will assist its clients to flourish by teaching essential skills and knowledge to participate in the workforce. We believe in the concept of continuous learning to provide you with autonomy and to live life to your full potential. We also perceive that we all have our own inner strengths and resources and so we work from a strength-based practice. Te Ahua Consulting will help you discover your inner strengths and own resources. We have the tools, the vision, the passion, the dedication, motivation, the training, the academic qualifications and the drive to succeed. We can help with your CV preparation, career counselling, employment preparation, job search including cold calling, psychometric profiling testing and assessments, computer, literacy or numeracy training amongst other training.
