Te Rautaki Māori: NZQA' s Māori Strategy

Te Rautaki Māori has been principally prepared to guide NZQA towards fulfilling its contribution to the government’s education sector goal of Māori enjoying and achieving education success as Māori.

The most recent version of Te Rautaki Māori expired in 2017 and it has been replaced by Te Kōkiritanga 2018-2020, this is a Strategic Outcomes Framework that directs the continued work in this space. It is expected that a refresh of Te Rautaki Māori will take place in 2020.
