In 2013 Te Wānanga o Raukawa (TWoR) continued to improve its educational performance, although it was consistently below sector averages, and remained in a sound financial position.

Responsiveness

In TWoR’s 2013 Annual Report, Te Amokapua/the Chair of Te Mana Whakahaere, Robin Hapi, highlighted a number of achievements, including the establishment of Te Wānanga o Raukawa Foundation, which will consider ways it can support TWoR. Of further importance was the reassurance that the new governance structure for wānanga will retain involvement of the founding iwi and appointment of the Chair.

In 2013 TWoR graduated the largest cohort of students in recent times, including a record number of 39 tāhuhu (Masters) degrees conferred, most of which were written in Te Reo Māori. TWoR improved against educational achievement measures, with acknowledgement of staff efforts to raise sights of students to pursue higher academic honours. TWoR made further advancements in improving financial management, protecting capital assets, enhancing relationships and planning to strengthen its role as a major contributor toward outcomes to ensure the survival of Māori as a people.

Te Tumuaki (Chief Executive) Mereana Selby recognised a number of additional achievements, including higher than expected enrolments in certificate-level programmes and the popularity of its online Te Reo language course, which attracted non-Māori and Māori. She also noted TWoR’s continued engagement with Whitireia Polytechnic, by providing a site for the delivery of a Whitireia carpentry programme resulting in the building of a four bedroom house.

TWoR’s enrolments remained stable, decreasing by just six EFTS on 2012 volumes. Delivery was spread across Levels 5‒6 (43%), Levels 7‒8 (25%), and Levels 3‒4 (24%), with provision concentrated in Society and Culture (54%), Creative Arts (19%), and Health (12%). Nearly all students (94%) identified as Māori, reflecting TWoR’s focus on increasing the number of Māori receiving tertiary education. TWoR’s participation for under-25-year-olds (27%) was well above the wānanga sector average of 17 percent and up one percentage point from 2012.

EffectivenessTop

Between 2012 and 2013 TWoR improved in both the course and qualification completion educational performance indicators (EPIs), with a 15 percent increase in qualification completion rate. TWoR nevertheless remained below the wānanga sector average for all EPIs.

Performance by Māori at TWoR was below the wānanga sector average across all four indicators, while under-25-year-olds achieved above average qualification completion and student progression rates. Compared with 2012 Māori and under-25-year-olds showed significant improvement in both course and qualification completion indicators.

Financial performanceTop

In 2013 TWoR had a net surplus of $0.4 million (2.7%), which was $0.36 million lower than in 2012. This was primarily owing to cost savings failing to fully offset revenue reductions.

Total revenue decreased by $0.9 million (5.5%) while total expenditure fell by $0.6 million (3.5%). Total assets grew by $0.9 million between 2012 and 2013, largely from increases in cash and cash equivalents.

In 2013 Robin Hapi stood down as a Ministerial appointee but remains as a council-appointed member, continues as Chair and is the Purutanga Mauri nominee for Te Mana Whakahaere. Two new Ministerial appointments were made, with Daphne Luke and Anne Carter both appointed for four-year terms.

The difference in size and offerings between the wānanga is significant and this may skew the wānanga-sector averages for comparative purposes.
