Supporting intergenerational wellbeing

We believe that having equitable access to education may improve the wellbeing of those learners most likely to be disadvantaged, and their whānau. We design our services for equity by actively using feedback from learners, their whānau and education organisations to co-design our services with them. We are engaging with learners in new ways that are more relevant to their learning needs and their contexts. We aim to focus on barriers that may confront learners and endeavour to address these barriers.

NZQA is focused on building strong Māori and Pasifika partnerships to understand how our services can better meet their needs and to enable their achievement of educational success.

Advancing mātauranga Māori is an important goal. We facilitate the quality assurance of qualifications based on mātauranga Māori and recognise the importance of mātauranga Māori to learners achieving their aspirations and positive wellbeing.

Learners with disabilities and learning support needs are a focus of attention. Likewise, it is important that those experiencing socio-economic disadvantage have access to qualifications that meet their needs and aspirations.

Our goal to be a te reo Māori learning organisation demonstrates our responsiveness to Māori expectations and commitment to Maihi Karauna (the Crown Māori Language Strategy) and Tau Mai Te Reo (the Māori Language in Education Strategy).
