A Samoan Cultural Leadership Programme that focuses on respectful engagement practices with Samoan people whether it’s on a one to one basis or with groups of people. This programme is suitable for both fluent and  people who have no or a little knowledge of the Samoan culture and language and who want to feel more comfortable when engaging with Samoan people in formal and informal situations. 

For our students, this programme will enable them to engage more effectively with Samoan families and stakeholders when speaking at different engagements. 

95% of this programme is taught in English so our students understand the beauty and richness of our Samoan culture.
