NCEA me te Whānau

NCEA me te Whānau is an NZQA led programme designed to help whānau Māori better understand NCEA. This is done through workshops hosted by schools and community groups.

When parents and whānau understand NCEA they are more likely to engage with their child’s learning journeys. By being engaged, whānau increase their child’s chance of success. 

What will I learn in the workshop?

NCEA me te Whānau workshops cover:

  • How NCEA works
  • NCEA endorsements and how to get them
  • University Entrance (UE) and how to achieve it
  • Choosing NCEA subjects and creating career pathways
  • The importance of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) subjects
  • How you can support your tamaiti to succeed.
