[English Follows]

Kei te Puta he Hua ki te Iwi Māori i te Whakangungu Ahumahi

20 April 2006

“Kei te piki haere tonu te tokomaha o ngāi Māori e whakapakari nei i ō rātou pūkenga mā roto i te whakangungu ahumahi”, e ai ki a Darel Hall, te kaiwhakahaere matua o te Industry Training Federation.

E ai ki ngā tātai tino mohoa kua whakaputaina e te Amorangi Mātauranga Matua, e 28,636 ngā tāngata Maori i uru atu ki ngā whakangungutanga ahumahi i te tau 2005, 22% te pikinga ake i te tau 2004.

Ka kitea i roto i ēnei tauanga i tōpū anō te urunga atu o te iwi Māori ki ngā mahi whakangungu ahumahi mai i te 31 o Tīhema 2000 me te 31 o Tīhema 2004.

“He maha ngā hua o te Whakangungu Ahumahi mā te Māori i te mea he tāwariwari, he hāngai ki runga i ngā mahi.

“He maha tonu ngā huarahi kei te whāia e ngā Whakahaere Whakangungu Ahumahi kia wātea ai ō rātou tohu ki te Māori, tae atu ki te whakarite kaupapa ako, tohu mātauranga hoki e ākona ana, e pā ana rānei ki ngā marae.

“E ai ki ā mātou rangahau o mua atu kei roto te tini o ngā ākonga ahumahi Māori i ngā ahumahi Whakatipu Rākau, Ratonga Pāpori, Kaimoana, Mahi Kāwanatanga, Pāmu Kau, me ngā Ahumahi Whakahaere Rawa Taketake” te kī a Darel Hall. "Ka kitea he taurite tonu tēnei ki te tokomaha o ngāi Māori e mahi nei hei kaimahi i aua ahumahi.”


Industry Training Working for Maori

20 April 2006

“More and more Maori are increasing their skills through industry training”, said Darel Hall, Executive Director of the Industry Training Federation.

The latest industry training figures released by the Tertiary Education Commission show that 28,636 Maori participated in industry training in 2005, a 22% increase from 2004.

The figures also show that Maori participation in industry training doubled between 31 December 2000 and 31 December 2004.

“Industry training works for Maori as the qualifications studied towards are flexible and relevant.

“Industry Training Organisations are using a variety of strategies to ensure their qualifications are accessible to Maori, including offering Marae based courses and qualifications.

“According to our previous research Maori industry trainees are concentrated in the Forestry, Social Services, Seafood, Public Sector, Dairy, and Infrastructure industries, which is largely reflective of the large numbers of Maori employed in these industries”, said Darel Hall.
