Aligning Te Marautanga o Aotearoa subjects and standards with the University Entrance approved subjects list

30 Mar 2017

The New Zealand Qualifications Authority (NZQA) is seeking views on a proposal to align subjects and standards from the Māori-medium curriculum, Te Marautanga o Aotearoa, with the University Entrance approved subjects list.

Te Marautanga o Aotearoa is the foundation curriculum document for Māori-medium education. It outlines the core learning and competencies of Māori-medium students, including the skills and knowledge required to enter university and follow chosen careers.

The proposal would enable:

  • Māori-medium students to continue their learning within Māori-medium up to and including NCEA Level 3 and be eligible to have their learning recognised for University Entrance
  • learning from Te Marautanga o Aotearoa to count towards the University Entrance requirement for 14 credits in each of three subjects on the approved subjects list.

You may read more about the proposal and provide your feedback through the consultation page.
