in te reo Māori
A Hamilton high school principal is hoping that trade papers translated into te reo Māori will allow students to see the value in their language.
The Building, Construction Industry Training Organisation (BCITO) have released the first building, construction and allied trades skills (BCATS) units in te reo Māori.
Presented and blessed at Hamilton school Ngā Taiātea Wharekura the qualifications have been developed to help engage with Māori secondary schools and encourage more Māori to consider careers in the building and construction industry.
The qualifications can also be used as NCEA unit standards.
