Māori Qualifications Services is pleased to advise that the new Whānau Ora and reviewed Hauora assessment standards were approved for listing on the Directory of Assessment Standards (DAS) in September 2017.

The standards are expected to be published mid-October and will be accessible by searching for the assessment standard reference number or title (see below).

Background

This review was a result of the mandatory review of the Health and Disabilities, Social Services and Whānau Ora qualifications and the subsequent listing of 11 mātauranga Māori qualifications in this area on the NZQF in December 2015.

10 new Whānau Ora assessment standards have been developed to align with the outcomes of the new Level 3 Whānau Ora qualification:

New Subfield

To align with these new qualifications, a new Subfield: Te Ara Hou ki te Ora has been developed with two new domains: Hauora and Whānau Ora. The Subfield Hauora will expire and all the current Hauora standards will be transferred to the new Hauora domain.
