A fund set up as an alternative to giving Maori an allocation of fourth generation mobile telephone spectrum could help 42 Maori into careers in information technology.

Enspiral Dev Academy, which offers fast-track training, says the Ka Hao Maori Digital Technology fund, managed by Te Puni Kokiri and MBIE, will fund the new Maori web development scholarships.

It extends Dev Academy's Te Uru Rangi scholarship programme, which has been running since 2015.

The scholarships will be worth $7000 with applicants paying the remaining $3500 to do the 18 week course.

Dev Academy can help students talk to iwi, businesses or other organisations to come up with the balance.

The courses, which run in Auckland and Wellington, attract career movers, university graduates and school leavers.

Almost 300 students since the first bootcamp in 2014, including 28 Maori graduates who are now working in organisations like Datacom, Enspire Group, Xero, and Signify.

The latest Oranga Tamariki outrage
Martyn 'Bomber' Bradbury: We have all been horrified by the brutality of Oranga Tamariki uplifts, we have all been shocked at the lack of oversight, we have all been angered by the total failure of checks and balances within a system that has eroded parental rights in favour of big data calculations that decide to take your child based on future crimes.
