Te Iti a Taranga

Māori Qualifications Services (MQS), have recently developed five new unit standards (5 credits each at Level 3) to recognise the inherent skills and knowledge that ākonga may already possess or have developed over time.

This suite of mātāpono (principles) based standards are named Te Iti a Taranga which represent some of the qualities characterised in her son Mauī and his four brothers.

The suite of new standards below differs from the standards currently listed in Field Māori in that they are context-free and can be used across a range of contexts and kaupapa which give the flexibility to students who are involved in activities and work outside of school.
