Te Wānanga o Raukawa (Raukawa) continued to improve its educational performance in 2012. Raukawa also improved its financial position, meeting most of the TEC’s financial performance guidelines.

Responsiveness

In Raukawa’s 2012 Annual Report, Te Amokapua/the Chair of Te Mana Whakahaere, Robin Hapi, highlighted the opening of Ngā Purapura, which had received accolades for design and sustainability. This multi-purpose facility aims to foster Māori health and lifestyle advancement by providing programmes in health, sports, fitness and nutrition. Raukawa also introduced new initiatives aimed at improving options for students, which included the establishment of Te Tākupu publishing house; a new online language programme – Huia Te Reo; and collaboration with the Waikato–Tainui College for Research and Development and Whitireia Polytechnic.

Te Tumuaki/the Chief Executive, Mereana Selby, commented on the value of the self-assessment tool, the Kaupapa–Tikanga Matrix. Raukawa moved into the facilitation of trades provision for the first time with the delivery of Whitireia Polytechnic’s one-year pre-trade carpentry programme on Raukawa’s campus. Plans were also developed for a new Raukawa-based Reo FM, following the successful broadcasting of the online language course – Huia Te Reo, which will enable more wānanga activities to be shared with the community.

Raukawa’s enrolments in 2012 reduced by 9 percent (129 EFTS). Provision was spread across Levels 5–6 (36%), Levels 7–8 (31%) and Levels 3–4 (27%), and the decrease was entirely across Levels 5–6. The main fields of study were Society and Culture (52%), Creative Arts (23%) and Information Technology (10%). Nearly all students (97% EFTS) in 2012 identified as Māori, reflecting Raukawa’s focus on increasing the number of Māori receiving tertiary education. Raukawa’s participation for under-25-year-olds was above the wānanga sector average, at 26 percent.

In 2012, Raukawa met the majority of the key performance indicators as outlined in its Statement of Service Performance.

EffectivenessTop

Raukawa improved in three of the four educational performance indicators, with only qualification completion down marginally on 2011 results. Raukawa was also above the wānanga sector average for student retention.

Māori student course completion (61%) improved by 3 percentage points but remained below the wānanga sector average. Māori student qualification completion also remained below the wānanga sector average and dropped by 1 percentage point on the previous year. Achievement of students under 25 years of age improved for course completion (up from 56% in 2011 to 64% in 2012) and for qualification completion (up from 54% in 2011 to 66% in 2012), which was above the wānanga sector average.

CapabilityTop

Raukawa was chaired from 1993 by Dr Turoa Royal who retired at the end of 2011, having made a major contribution to the wānanga and Māori education in general. Robin Hapi was nominated for the position by Ngā Purutanga Mauri, and was elected by Te Mana Whakahaere in December 2011.

Other changes to Te Mana Whakahaere included the resignation of Professor Sir Mason Durie, following his retirement from Massey University, and of Michelle Hippolite who was appointed Te Tumuaki of Te Puni Kōkiri. During the year, the Paihere Tangata Committee provided leadership in the process of re-engaging Mereana Selby as Te Tumuaki.

Raukawa reported a net surplus of $0.8 million (4.7%), which was up on the 2011 result of $0.7 million (3.4%). Total revenue decreased by $3.4 million (16.6%), reflecting decreases in government funding of $0.7 million and student tuition fees of $2.1 million. Raukawa made savings in the same period of $3.5 million (17.7%).

At the end of 2012, Raukawa was holding $20.3 million (2011: $19.5 million) on behalf of Te Wānanga o Raukawa Foundation. These funds are expected to be distributed in 2013, following the appointment of the inaugural Chair of the Foundation.
