Qualification Development Projects

In-progress projects

Muka Tangata launched the Agriculture qualifications development project on 4 March 2024.

Through the Agriculture project, we will review and develop qualifications, micro-credentials, and standards from Level 3 to Level 5 for Agriculture industries including arable, dairy, sheep, beef, deer, pork, and poultry farming.

The project aims to examine the current and future skills needs of our agriculture industries and ensure that they are represented in our educational products. Having clear skills and career pathways within these qualifications will enhance transition between different levels of training and qualifications as well as improving transferability of skills for our agricultural workforce.

If you are interested in joining one of our advisory groups, please fill out this short survey: Get involved

More detail about the project and how you can be involved can be found in the Initiation Document (linked below).

The Agriculture qualifications development project will be supported by our New Approach to Learner Pathways project which is designing a multi-level Food and Fibre Skills Framework to bridge the formal / non-formal learning divide.

Alongside the Agriculture project, we have launched the Entry Level project. Muka Tangata is working with key partners including industry, iwi Māori, schools, Kura Māori, trades academies, and employers to look at pathways from senior secondary school into our entry-level qualifications, as well as entry options for people interested in joining the food and fibre industries.
