Health Workforce New Zealand Funding


Health Workforce Directorate Funding  - Applications for funding for 2022 open on the 6th September 2021 and close on the 3rd October 2021. 

HWD Applications

Applications are accepted through our online learning platform - Ko Awatea Learn.

As this is a secure site, an individual username and password will be needed for each nurse to access the application form. 
Lakes DHB staff - you have access to this site as DHB employees.

Community Providers - If you have staff who may wish to apply for funding your organisation will need to have a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with Lakes District Health Board regarding this access.

Please get in touch with Rachel Wainohu ( ) ASAP to begin this process as it can take up to 2 weeks to get everything in order.
For those who already have their MOU in place and can access Ko Awatea here is a link to the HWNZ funding area.

The area is open now and has a tab called Career planning. This area holds a template for career planning .

There is also a Q&A forum where nurses can ask questions. These questions will be answered directly in the forum so will eventually build a FAQ area.

 Funding allocation will be communicated to applicants in early December.

We recommend that applicants enroll in their preferred paper ASAP prior to being allocated funding to ensure that the places don't fill up.
