Leadership micro-credential

Qualification Development Projects

In-progress projects

Muka Tangata has been working with representatives and leaders across the people, food and fibre sector, and from other Workforce Development Councils, to design a new formal leadership course for emerging leaders.

The micro-credential will support people moving into leadership roles to become more confident in themselves and what they’re doing, enabling them to be reflective, resilient and versatile.

The new micro-credential is being developed to replace an existing primary industries micro-credential and an informal leadership course that has been delivered in the horticultural sector over the last two years. The new leadership micro-credential is being informed by Food and Fibre Centre for Vocational Excellence research and will support a leadership ecosystem for Aotearoa New Zealand’s people, food and fibre sector.
