The Rangatahi Futures programme affirms the identity, language and culture of Māori learners.

The programme was successfully piloted in 11 schools in 2014 and as a result is being rolled out nationally in 2015/16.

About the Rangatahi Futures programme

How does the Rangatahi Futures programme work?

The programme is divided into two Year groups, along with a whānau programme.

Year 10 programme

The Year 10 modules, ngā mahi a ngā tūpuna careers of our ancestors, use cultural examples to explore how interests, values and aptitude influence career choices.

Year 11 programme

The Year 11 Māori Futuremakers modules introduce rangatahi to the types of career opportunities within the emerging Māori economy.

Whānau information session

As part of the delivery, schools are encouraged to provide a whānau information session to allow whānau to support their students through the programme.
