Māori Tertiary Education Framework
This is a strategic document for Māori in tertiary education
About the framework
Created in 2003, the Māori Tertiary Education Framework is designed to support:
- Tertiary Education Organisations, as the steering and funding policies of the tertiary reforms continue
- Māori communities, to assist them in their interactions with local tertiary providers and the development of their own education plans
- Government agencies, through offering strategic direction for future policy development
- industry and businesses, as they work to establish links between Māori communities, tertiary education providers and themselves for the purpose of regional economic development.
The framework is not a completed work and is not prescriptive. It aims to act as a starting point to initiate discussions between these communities and their local and regional tertiary education providers.
Professor Linda Tuhiwai Smith lead the nation-wide consultation process amongst Māori communities for the development of the Tertiary Education Strategy.
