“The goal is for me to be unemployed because we've transitioned our wāhine successfully out into the community with a lot of industry, trades, learning qualifications,” i kī atu te Kaiwhakahaere Matua o Te Whareherehere Wāhine o Tāmaki Makaurau, a Cheryle Mikaere.

E waru rau e rua tekau ngā wāhine kua mauhere i ngā whareherehere huri noa i te motu, ā, tōna ono tekau ō rātou he Māori.

E aru ana tētehi wāhine Māori i te ara o angitū me tana whai i te tohu hauora pae tuatoru i Skills Active Aotearoa.

“We're delivering the fitness qualifications,” ka kōrero atu te kaimahi o Skills Active Aotearoa a Hare Pupuke.

“Level two and level three, also a level four qualification, which when achieved, allows people to be able to work in gyms, develop programmes, become personal trainers, group fitness instructors.”

“We have an absolute robust screening process. So we have a released-to-work broker and she identifies the right wahine for the right employer,” i mea atu a Mikaere.

"The GPS monitoring tool that we have. Very effective because we don't have to have corrections officers out there because of the lower security rating for our wahine.”
