Have your say: Learning outcomes for new Forestry Earthworks micro-credentials

Muka Tangata is seeking feedback on the learning outcomes of proposed new micro-credentials for the Forestry Earthworks industry.

Muka Tangata has been working with representatives from the Forest industry and vocational education sector on the review and development of the whole suite of Forestry qualifications since June 2023.

Muka Tangata Chief Executive Jeremy Baker says ensuring the qualifications are more compatible with ākonga (learner) development will provide clear pathways in the industry.

“Having a fit for purpose, flexible and future-proof suite of qualifications for the Forestry industry will ensure ākonga are equipped with the knowledge, skills, and attributes to succeed.”

Through this work, Muka Tangata has developed 7 micro-credentials that recognise ākonga (learners) specific skills, experience and knowledge. In developing the new credentials with industry, the result is fit for purpose, flexible, and future-proof credentials for the Forest industry.

As part of this review, Muka Tangata is now seeking feedback from those with knowledge of the Forestry Earthworks industry on the proposed learning outcomes for the new micro-credentials.

Consultation on the proposed new micro-credentials closes on Friday 24 November. Feedback can be provided here: Consultation survey.

Clear and well-defined learning outcomes mean that both ākonga and industry know that the needs of the industry will be met through these credentials.
