Measuring more than te reo Māori language proficiency

Building capability to better support the Māori Crown relationship has been identified by Māori, the government and the public services as a critical area of development for the public sector.

Designed to follow Te Arawhiti’s six core competency areas framework, Te ara ki tua measures the success of an organisation’s Māori cultural capability strategy across tikanga, treaty understanding, racial equity and more.

AskYourTeam want to support the great outcomes these strategies will bring. Te ara ki tua provides a standardised measurement tool for organisations to understand their own journey over time.

Maihi Karauna: the Crown’s Strategy for Māori Language revitalisation


Te ara ki tua has been developed to support the three audacious goals to be achieved by 2040:
> 85% of New Zealanders (or more) will value te reo Māori as a key part of national identity.

> One million New Zealanders (or more) will have the ability and confidence to talk about at least basic things in te reo Māori.

150,000 Māori aged 15 and over will use te reo Māori as much as English
Te Puni Kōkiri has led the development of a monitoring and evaluation framework for the Maihi Karauna, in collaboration with Te Taura Whiri i te Reo Māori.

Te ara ki tua is part of the shared data plan within that framework, represented as a ridge beam (tahuhu) across the individual monitoring and evaluation projects.
