« Back to Kaupapa Māori

What is Kaupapa Māori?

Kaupapa Māori is a learning area rich in Te Ao Māori skills, knowledge and topics. There is a wide variety of kaupapa to explore and engage in, and ample opportunity to connect learning from a Māori context to other subjects offered at Te Kura.

Kaupapa Māori offers eleven main subjects as listed below, and the opportunity to explore more than 80 kaupapa within those subjects.

Learning can be tailored to suit ākonga at all levels of the curriculum, from primary and intermediate to NCEA Levels 1–3.

Ākonga are supported by kaiako, kaimanaaki, whānau and hapori to select pathways of learning relevant to their aspirations, career pathway or interests and passions. Ākonga are encouraged to link with their local area experts, online communities and whānau who have skills and experience to guide them through these learning kaupapa.

For many ākonga, including young adult and adult learners, there are no fees for Kaupapa Māori courses. Please see our Fees page for further information.

What this course involves

Taranga was the mother of the famous ancestor Māui and his four brothers. They each possessed the intrinsic characteristics that prominently feature in the five standards offered in this course. The standards, and the learning that goes with them, are designed to link to activities and work ākonga may be involved in outside of school either at whānau, hapū, hapori or iwi hui/kaupapa or events. This course recognises the inherent skills and knowledge that ākonga may already possess or have developed over time.

Delivery Modes
