Review of Māori Governance qualifications

Maori Governance

E hī ake ana te atakura.  He tio, he huka, he hauhunga

The red dawn comes with a sharpened air, a touch of frost, the promise of a glorious day.

Approved for Listing

Māori Qualifications Services (MQS) is pleased to confirm that on the 8 April 2015 two mātauranga Māori qualifications developed in the mandatory review of Māori Governance qualifications were listed on the New Zealand Qualifications Framework (NZQF) with an overall rating of He Pounamu Whakairo.

These qualifications can be accessed through the links above or by searching for the qualification reference number or title.

Now that these qualifications are listed, providers will need to obtain programme approval or provider accreditation to deliver an approved programme before they can offer the new qualifications.

What next

MQS is now reviewing and developing relevant unit standards to support the new qualifications.

As part of the review, it is anticipated that in mid-August MQS will submit an application for a change to the classification system that the unit standards will be transferred into. The proposed new classifications are:

New subfield

  • Māori Governance

New domains

  • Governance of Māori Authorities
  • Governance of Māori Land

An update on the review of the unit standards can be found by visiting the NZQA webpage Unit standard reviews and developments.
