Ngā Peka o Toi is the sector-focused denomination covering the various sectors and industries Toi Mai represents in the vocational education and training space, including the creative, technology, entertainment, hairdressing and barbering, makeup artistry, skincare, journalism, radio and television broadcasting, gambling, and sports and recreation industries.
This categorisation of our sectors came about following the release of the COVID-19 Recovery Baseline Engagement and Data (BED) Project, which identified the need for a more holistic identification of our workforces embedded in te ao Māori.
In March 2023, we released Te Wao Nui o Toi, which connected the film industry to the narrative of a forest ecosystem in the manner of Te Wao Nui a Tāne. Following the development of this kaupapa, our sectors – originally denoted as the creative, cultural, recreation and technology (CCRT) sectors – became Ngā Peka (branches) o Toi, each being a part of a wider Toi Mai ecosystem.
