This research was conducted by Patricia Lucas, Sally Rae, Robert Hogg, Nicola Anderson and Carolyn Cairncross.

Ngā taonga hunahuna (hidden treasures) identified in WIL

Employability is an ongoing, complex developmental process. Understanding employability for Māori, the indigenous peoples of Aotearoa New Zealand (NZ), is an under researched area. It is not clear if employability is culturally influenced, and if it is, how and why this is so. This pilot case study begins the journey of exploring Māori employability in the context of Bachelor of Sport and Recreation (BSR) Māori students, graduates and employers in the industry. We will share our key findings and discuss how they may influence WIL programs in NZ.
