E ngā mana, e ngā reo, e ngā karangataha maha nei rā ngā kupu maioha atu ki a koutou. Harikoa ana mātou ki te tuku tēnei mahere mahi o Toi Mai ki a koutou.

Toi Mai is the Ohu Ahumahi Workforce Development Council for Ngā Peka o Toi.

Our purpose is to ensure the creative, cultural, recreation and technology sectors in Aotearoa are supported by a skilled, diverse and thriving workforce.

We do this by engaging with industry, whānau/hapū/iwi, Māori businesses and underrepresented communities such as Pacific peoples, tāngata whaikaha, wāhine, the neurodiverse and LGBTQIA+ to ensure the vocational education system meets industry and workforce development needs.
