Abstract

Māori students’ educational success is critical to Aotearoa New Zealand’s success. The New Zealand Government is committed to supporting Māori learners explore and achieve full potential as Māori. To fulfil this commitment, the Ministry of Education released Ka Hikitia – Managing for Success: The Māori Education Strategy 2008–2012 in April 2008, which sets the direction for improving education outcomes for and with Māori learners. The Youth Guarantee (YG) programme is one of the initiatives which aim to increase the educational achievement of 16 and 17 year olds by making the education system more responsive to their needs. The Ministry of Education is currently undertaking a research project to evaluate the YG with a focus on improving these programmes to better meet the needs of Māori learners. This report offers a snapshot of the achievements of the YG Māori learners at Wintec and the challenges they face.
