Whakarongo, whakarongo!
Whakarongo ki te tangi a te manu nei a te mātūī.
Tui tui tui tuia.
Tuia i runga, tuia i raro
Tuia i roto, tuia i waho.
Tuia te taura here i a tāua te tangata
ki te whaiao ki te ao mārama
Whakamaua kia tina! TINA!
Haumi e, hui e! TĀIKI E!

Listen, listen!
Listen to the sound of this bird, the
tūī

Lash, stitch, weave together
Weave above and below
Weave inside and outside
Weave the cord which ties people together
Into the world of light and understanding
Positive affirmation by all
United in our endeavour

Work-Integrated Learning New Zealand (WILNZ) is a not-for-profit, incorporated society that brings together a network of people involved in Work-Integrated Learning (WIL). 

Our membership includes individuals and institutions around New Zealand who facilitate WIL experiences in many different forms. WIL embraces all forms of experiential learning utilized by educational institutions and industry to prepare the next generation of global professionals. It can be reflected by different terminology, such as work placements, work-based learning, cooperative education, internships, semester in industry, international co-op exchanges, study abroad, clinical rotations, service learning and community service.

We bring together our network of colleagues through webinars, discussions and online communications. We support and publish research in WIL and provide guidelines for institutions with WIL programmes. We have links with overseas WIL networks. We host an annual conference to bring our network together to present research and good practice.
