Wānanga are unique organisations that offer quality education based on Māori principles and values. We fund three wānanga of significantly different sizes and offerings. Approximately 60% of all students at wānanga are Māori.

The following tables show how the Tertiary Education Strategy (TES) groups – Māori and Pasifika learners, and at-risk young people – performed compared to all students at wānanga (forStudent Achievement Component (SAC)funding, and for Youth Guarantee(YG) funding).

Note: Qualification completion rates can be affected by increases or decreases in enrolments which can result in variability in the reported performance between years.

What data have we excluded? 

If an organisation is funded for less than five equivalent full-time students (EFTS), we don’t report educational performance indicators (EPIs) results. This is to ensure that individual students are not identified.

If an organisation has fewer than 30 EFTS at a particular level of study, we don’t report EPI results for that level, so that any comparison of rates is based on statistically robust sample sizes.
