Whakamahi Whenua / Mahinga Māra Kai Consultation
Closed 28 Sep 2012
NZQA Māori Qualifications Services (MQS) is working on developing New Zealand Qualifications in Whakamahi Whenua/Mahinga Māra Kai.
To ensure these qualifications meet the current and future needs of tauira Māori, NZQA is seeking feedback from interested groups/parties on the Whakamahi Whenua/Mahinga Māra Kai qualifications.
Qualifications in Environment Māori, Wahi Tapu, and Whakamahi Whenua/Mahinga Māra Kai (at levels 1-6, excluding university qualifications) have been scheduled for review in 2012 as part of the mandatory review of the Horticulture qualifications.
The main objective of the mandatory review is to reduce the duplication and proliferation of qualifications on a national scale, and to ensure that qualifications are useful, relevant and valuable to current and future learners, employers and other stakeholders.
NZQA, Māori Qualifications Services (MQS) in conjunction with the Horticulture Industry Training Organisation are currently reviewing Māori Environmental qualifications including the Whakamahi Whenua/Mahinga Māra Kai qualification.
To ensure qualifications meet the current and future needs of tauira Māori, MQS is seeking feedback from interested groups/parties who have an interest in Whakamahi Whenua/Mahinga Māra Kai.
