Extend your understanding and ability in te reo Māori me nga tikanga. Learn to perform with confidence in formal and informal Māori cultural settings.

The National Diploma in Reo Maori (Level 5) is a one year, full time programme based on an extension of the language base, developing use of Māori language, history and tikanga.

Programme Outline

The curriculum  incorporates pānui, whakarongo, tuhituhi, kōrero, paki, ōkawa, kīwaha, kīrehu, taunaha, whakatauākī, whaikōrero, karanga, haka, karakia, waiata, waiata-ā-ringa and waiata tawhito.

Programme structure and delivery includes a wide range of strategies that allow students to learn according to their specific needs. Practical experiences – noho marae, peer and group exercises, use of rākau, role modelling and pōwhiri – are included in the programme design to ensure a continuum of te reo Māori in a total immersion environment. Students are required to participate in noho marae (compulsory) and formal practices when required.
