Qualifications Development Projects

Developing Qualifications

Muka Tangata leads the consultation, creation, and development of educational components (qualifications, standards and micro-credentials) and pathways in the food and fibre sector.

Qualification Development Projects are initiated in response to industry requests and undertaken in collaboration with industry, iwi and hapū Māori and training providers. They ensure that ākonga (learners) are equipped with the knowledge, skills and attributes needed to succeed in the sector.
