The Rangatahi Futures programme supports teachers to deliver culturally responsive career education to Māori learners.
About Rangatahi Futures
Rangatahi Futures is a youth career education programme that reflects the identity, language and culture of Māori learners, and supports them to explore key career understandings in culturally affirming ways.
The programme was successfully piloted in 11 South Island schools in 2014, and is now being rolled out nationally. Rangatahi Futures is relevant to any educational or community organisation that works with rangatahi Māori.
Year 10 programme
Ngā mahi a ngā tūpuna, Careers of our ancestors encourages rangatahi to:
- reflect on the waka journeys of their ancestors
- explore key career management competencies
- complete their own career plan.
The modules use cultural examples to explore how interests, values and aptitude influence career choices.
Year 11 programme
Te ao ōhanga Māori, Our place in the economy teaches students about:
- Māori businesses of the past and today
- how businesses are connected to the economy, their whānau, hapū, iwi and communities
- career opportunities available in the emerging Māori economy.
Rangatahi are encouraged to take action to forge their own careers in whatever field they choose so they are able to find their place in Aotearoa New Zealand's economy.
