Te Pūkenga has developed Te Kawa Maiorooro, Te Pūkenga educational regulatory framework.
Te Kawa Maiorooro covers regulations that affect learners, like enrolment, assessment, complaints and graduation. Te Kawa Maiorooro has not yet replaced all of the policies and procedures of Unitec (now part of Te Pūkenga), so where Te Kawa Maiorooro does not cover something, the individual, former Unitec policies and procedures still apply.
