Level 3 Te Reo Māori

Subject Description

Teacher in Charge: Ms D. Wainohu

In 2021, this course will be taught through Te Kura with the strong support of whaea Daveda Wainohu and Meg Doile (Online learning coordinator)

Te Reo o Te Ao Whānui - societal & national perspectives - is the focus of NCEA Level 3. Ākonga (students) are listening, presenting, reading, speaking, and writing in situations - formal and informal, traditional and contemporary - that extend beyond their own perspectives & everyday lives. Supported by their own in-depth research, ākonga are reviewing & analysing other perspectives before evaluating & presenting findings on a wide range of issues. The course is based on the Whāinga Paetae (achievement objectives) at Level 8 of the NZ Curriculum - go to 'Useful Links' at the bottom of this page for more information.

Ākonga will select  three of the five achievement standards (three of which are UE-accredited) on offer. An additional achievement standard will be offered to ākonga requiring extension. Focussing on three standards across the year will ensure ākonga gain depth in their learning as well as maintaining their well-being across their full academic and co-curricular workload.

Pathway

According to Careers NZ, "It's helpful to have knowledge of te reo Māori for jobs such as policy analyst, reporter, editor, librarian or CEO. It’s important to be able to pronounce Māori names and places correctly if you’re a news reader, or television or radio presenter. For jobs such as Kaiwhakaako Māori (Māori medium school teacher), interpreter or translator, you must be fluent in te reo Māori." In terms of small business, "The Ministry for Business, Innovation and Employment estimates the Māori economy to be worth $40-$50 billion in 2018, and that figure is growing. Most iwi businesses are in agriculture, forestry or fisheries, but you could also find your dream job in the related legal, marketing, management and science fields, or in one of the many small-to-medium Māori enterprises."
