Te Kōkiritanga 2020-2023

On Thursday 24 September 2020, NZQA launched its new Māori Strategic Action Plan Te Kōkiritanga 2020-2023: NZQA's Action Plan for Ākonga Māori success.

Kokiri is a Māori word which means advancing forward in unison. The name Te Kōkiritanga has been used to illustrate the collaboration that will be required to achieve our strategic goals.

Te Kōkiritanga outlines our commitment to work with education system agencies in achieving equity for ākonga Māori and their whānau.

Te Kōkiritanga reaffirms NZQA's commitment to the Crown's obligations to Te Tiriti o Waitangi and the principles of partnership, protection and participation.

The 30-year education vision

The actions included within Te Kōkiritanga are closely aligned to the 30-year education vision as well as Ka Hikitia and Tau Mai Te Reo. The five objectives for education that underpin the 30-year vision are:

  • Learners at the Centre
  • Barrier free Access
  • Quality Teaching and Leadership
  • Future of Learning and Work
  • World-Class Inclusive Public Education
