Strategic Purpose Statement
The National Certificate in Maori (Te Ngutu Awa) (Level 4) [Ref: 1006] is a progression from the ''gateway'' qualification National Certificate in Maori (Te Waharoa) (Level 2) with optional strands in Reo Maori, Maori Performing Arts, Whakairo, Nga Mahi a Te Whare Pora, Reo Maori Media, Te Whakamahi Whenua, and Marae Catering [Ref: 0878]. From a Maori perspective, this qualification pathway represents the journey from the ''gateway'' towards the whare tipuna of the marae. Te Ngutu Awa is designed to provide a Matauranga Maori focus for learners, and to recognise the general achievement of learners of all ages. This qualification is intended to be accessible to the Secondary and Tertiary sectors.

Te Ngutu Awa is designed to appeal to Maori with a view to increasing pathways to higher levels of education and training, to enable access to the skills required for employment, and to attest to the ability to participate in, and benefit from, further study thereby promoting lifelong learning.

Te Ngutu Awa has been structured to include optional strands that could provide explicit pathways to specialised qualifications at higher levels in Field Maori:
. The Reo Maori Optional Strand may lead into the National Certificate in Reo Maori (Level 4) [Ref: 0426], or the National Diploma in Reo Maori (Level 5) [Ref: 1196].

. The Hauora Optional Strand may lead into the National Certificate in Hauora (Maori Health) (Level 4)[Ref: 0710], or the National Diploma in Hauora (Maori Health) (Level 5) [Ref: 0711].
