Tēnā koutou katoa,
Since the launch of Te Rautaki Māori me te Mahere Whakatinana a te Mana Tohu Mātauranga o Aotearoa 2007 – 2012, NZQA has gained confidence in its ability to contribute to improved outcomes for Māori. We continue to look at how NZQA can carry out core functions efficiently and in ways that effectively contribute to Māori achieving and enjoying education success as Māori.

In 2011, NZQA management carried out a review of its progress against the 16 key actions of Te Rautaki Māori me te Mahere Whakatinana a te Mana Tohu Mātauranga o Aotearoa 2007 – 2012. The review found that the key deliverables had been achieved. This is a significant accomplishment.

Over the five year life of Te Rautaki Māori me te Mahere Whakatinana a te Mana Tohu Mātauranga o Aotearoa 2007 – 2012, Māori learner statistics have improved.

The achievements of the first Māori strategy have positioned NZQA well to deliver on the goals of Te Rautaki Māori a te Mana Tohu Mātauranga o Aotearoa 2012 - 2017. After extensive engagement and consultation with Māori and iwi, learners, education providers and the education sector, the Board of NZQA is pleased to present the refreshed strategy; Te Rautaki Māori a te Mana Tohu Mātauranga o Aotearoa 2012 - 2017.

NZQA is committed to deliver on this strategy which has two principal goals; Accelerated Maori learner success and Advanced use of Mātauranga Māori. The Board will oversee the integration of the strategy into NZQA’s core business through the able leadership of the Chief Executive and the four Deputy Chief Executives.

I wish to acknowledge and sincerely thank the members of Ngā Kaitūhono, Te Whakaruruhau Matua and the NZQA Māori Economic Development Forum for their valuable contribution to the refresh of this strategy.

Similarly, the advice and guidance of Te Rautaki Māori Reference Group was essential to the preparation of a strategy that is both grounded in what can be realistically achieved, as well as challenging. My thanks to Jenn Bestwick, Professor Wiremu Doherty, Sir Mason Durie, Tanira Kingi, Tipa Mahuta, Noeline Matthews and Shona Smith for their important contribution to Te Rautaki Māori a te Mana Tohu Mātauranga o Aotearoa 2012 - 2017.

He mihi nui ki a koutou
