Overview

What is Change 2 – Mana ōrite mō te mātauranga Māori – Equal status for mātauranga Māori in NCEA?

We are working to ensure there is equal status, support and resourcing for mātauranga Māori in NCEA, opening up greater opportunities for ākonga to access mātauranga Māori and the pathways that lead from it. This change is system-wide, with mātauranga Māori being woven into all aspects of NCEA. The resources on this page are designed to support kaiako to implement Change 2 and foster a holistic understanding of mātauranga Māori and its importance.

On this page, you’ll find resources designed to support kaiako to implement Mana ōrite mō te mātauranga Māori.
