Te Rautaki Māori 2012-2017
Te Rautaki Māori 2012-2017 has been principally prepared to guide NZQA towards fulfilling its contribution to the government’s education sector goal of Māori enjoying and achieving education success as Māori.
The strategy also informs Māori, whānau, hapū and iwi about how NZQA has committed to working with and for Māori to meet the goals set out in Te Rautaki Māori 2012-2017.
There are two goals for the new strategy, they are:
Accelerated Māori learner success; and
Advanced use of mātauranga Māori.

These goals underpin the direction of NZQA’s Te Rautaki Māori 2012-2017 implementation programme. The goals are interdependent. They recognise the cultural relevance mātauranga Māori provides for learners, across all education mediums, and is a key contributor to accelerating Māori learner success.
This new strategy includes some new focus areas but will also continue to build on the deliverables of the first by carrying through key themes which include contributing to improved Māori student achievement outcomes, implementing mātauranga Māori evaluative quality assurance, strengthening relationships and support for Māori expert groups and developing organisational culture and capability to engage effectively with Māori.
