Muka Tangata is teaming up with key industry and vocational education partners to thoroughly assess all agriculture qualifications, micro-credentials, and standards. This project aims to create adaptive, long-lasting learning pathways for ākonga (learners), employers, and the agriculture sector.

The Agriculture qualifications development project aims to streamline the transition between training levels, and enhance the transferability of skills for our agricultural workforce. We will further investigate the issues, challenges, and gaps in learning to create education components that better suit the needs of ākonga, kaimahi, and ahumahi (industry), which will allow for improved support from kaiwhakarato (providers).
