Review of Environment Māori unit standards

The Environment Māori unit standards were approved for listing on the Directory of Assessment Standards in November 2015.

These unit standards were reviewed to ensure that they were fit for purpose, relevant and aligned to the graduate profile outcomes of the new Environment Māori and Whenua qualifications.

For more information on the outcome of the unit standards review please visit the Environment Māori page.
