Te Rautaki Māori 2012-2017

Implementation Programme

Te Rautaki Māori 2012 - 2017 implementation programme consists of four workstreams and six key initiatives. The implementation programme outlines how NZQA will focus its efforts to successfully implement Te Rautaki Māori 2012 - 2017.

To formulate the implementation programme, NZQA considered the progress made against the key actions in Te Rautaki Māori 2007 - 2012, as well as the feedback from Māori and iwi clients during the preparation of Te Rautaki Māori 2012 - 2017. The  feedback confirmed that NZQA has strengthened its relationships with Māori clients through its implementation of Te Rautaki Māori 2007 - 2012. NZQA will continue to invest in these relationships over the next five years.

The 2011 review of progress against the key actions of Te Rautaki Māori 2007 - 201111 found that continuing support for NZQA staff is needed to fulfil the strategic intent of Te Rautaki Māori 2012 - 2017. Strengthening NZQA’s organisational effectiveness and capability to address the needs of Māori underpins Te Rautaki Māori 2012 - 2017. This will be achieved by enhancing NZQA’s responsiveness to Māori learners across all delivery mediums, by increasing NZQA’s understanding of whānau, hapū and iwi aspirations and by recognising mātauranga Māori. Ongoing investment in NZQA staff capability is viewed as essential over the next five years.

Some of the previous strategy’s key actions have been built on, and in some cases, carried forward and combined together with the new key initiatives outlined in the workstreams of Te Rautaki Māori 2012 - 2017.

Shared responsibility for the execution of the key actions within the previous strategy was central to its success. It reinforced the value of NZQA-wide accountability for the strategy, led by each of the Deputy Chief Executives (DCEs). NZQA intends to take the same approach with Te Rautaki Māori 2012 - 2017. Each of the NZQA divisions have been assigned an implementation workstream.

NZQA recognises that adequate resourcing, both staff and budget, is critical to the strategy’s success. Building staff capability to deliver on the strategy goals is also part of NZQA’s commitment to Te Rautaki Māori 2012 - 2017.
