A series of webisodes – a first for Te Wānanga o Aotearoa – will explain legal issues that affect kaimahi in their daily work.

The 13 webisodes that are by kaimahi for kaimahi feature familiar TWoA faces who discuss how The Privacy Act, Fair Trading Act and Copyright Act affect what we do.

The webisodes examine the importance of complying with these laws to ensure the safety of Te Wānanga o Aotearoa and its kaimahi and use everyday examples that help to clarify where breaches of the law could occur.

Julia Steenson, who is the senior legal advisor – Taumatua and produced the short videos with the help of the creative team from Te Ipurau, said the webisodes would help kaimahi learn about the New Zealand laws that they need to know for their work.

“They will be available for you to enjoy, while learning things to assist your mahi, via Schoox (thanks to Hangarau) in the New Year,” said Julia.

Can’t wait to see them? Me neither…so let’s take a sneak peek whānau….https://youtu.be/Xw13ekdewsU
