Introducing Health Lead

on 21 April

Tēnā koutou 

I te taha o tōku matua – Nō Ireland ōku tūpuna.
I te taha o tōku whaea – Nō England ōku tūpuna
I whānau mai au i Widnes, Cheshire i United Kingdom
Kei Ōtautahi ahau e noho ana
Ko Kaye Gilhooley tōku ingoa
He Health Transformation Lead au i Toitū Te Waiora

In my mihi, I recount that I have ancestors from Ireland and England, and I grew up in Widnes, Cheshire, UK. I now live in Christchurch. 

I am the Health Lead in the Industry Transformation Team at Toitū Te Waiora and I wanted to reach out to the sector and introduce myself.

Toitū te Waiora is one of six new Workforce Development Councils (WDCs) set up to ensure that vocational education offered in Aotearoa meets sector needs and gives a stronger voice to Māori business and iwi development. It also aims to better meet the needs of Māori, Pasifika, people with disabilities, and other underserved learners. The function of WDCs is to develop qualification and skill standards that respond to sector needs. We cover the community, health, education and social services sectors.

You may already have had communications or interactions with my colleagues in Toitū Te Waiora, or I may have already connected with you on a specific issue.  Apologies for any double posting.

If you would like to connect, I would love the opportunity to say hi, hear about the mahi you are doing, and consider any opportunities for future collaboration.


Nāku, nā
