Te Wānanga o Raukawa (TWoR) saw improved educational performance and remained in a strong financial position

Responsiveness

In the 2014 annual report, Chair Robin Hapi highlighted several achievements. These included work undertaken in designing a new academic model, which was approved by NZQA for all undergraduate degree courses; participating in the “Wānanga Ringahora” Business and Economic Research Limited (BERL) report on the economic contribution of the wānanga sector; the development of its own te reo Māori teaching resources; and gaining council approval to update facilities, including expanding the library, a new student activity centre and teaching space.

Te Tumuaki (Chief Executive) Mereana Selby also highlighted several achievements in 2014 including: continuing to improve educational performance; the academic achievements of wānanga staff – Petina Winiata was the first Māori woman to complete a PhD in te reo Māori, Meihana Durie was awarded a Hohua Tutengaehe post-doctoral research fellowship and Kim McBreen was awarded a Fulbright Post-doctoral Scholarship; and a delegation attended a hui in New York City, representing the JR McKenzie Trust and accepting an award on their behalf for work in indigenous philanthropy.

Enrolments at TWoR remained stable, increasing slightly (13 EFTS) on 2013 volumes with an increase of 258 EFTS at Level 5. Delivery was spread across Levels 5–6 (62%), Levels 7–8 (21%) and Levels 3–4 (13%), with provision concentrated in Society and Culture (61%), Creative Arts (20%), Health (9%) and Education (5%). Māori participation was high (92%), reflecting a focus on increasing the number of Māori receiving tertiary education but down from the 94 percent achieved in 2013. Participation for under-25-year-olds (26%) was well above the wānanga sector average of 16 percent. Pasifika participation (2%) increased slightly on 2013 but was below the sector average (10%).

EffectivenessTop

Between 2013 and 2014, TWoR improved in both the course and qualification completion EPIs, with a 5 percentage point increase in course completion. TWoR remained below the wānanga sector average for all EPIs.

Performance by Māori at TWoR was below the wānanga sector average for all EPIs apart from qualification completion, which was 6 percentage points higher than the average. Under-25-year-olds achieved above-average rates for all EPIs apart from student retention, which was slightly lower than the average. Compared with 2013, Māori and under-25-year-olds showed significant improvement in both course and qualification completions. However, retention dropped for all groups as did progression for under-25 year olds and Māori.

Financial performanceTop

In 2014, TWoR achieved a net surplus of $0.9 million (6.2%), an improvement of $0.5 million over 2013. TWoR’s total revenue decreased by $0.5 million (–3.0%) from 2013 to 2014, driven by a $0.6 million (–24.0%) reduction in student fees.

Total expenditure reduced by $1.0 million (–6.2%) mainly due to a $.7 million reduction in personnel expenditure.

Total assets decreased by $2.4 million (–3.2%) between 2013 and 2014 to $73.5 million.

TWoR holds significant cash assets of $55.4 million as at 31 December 2014. However, $21.4 million (2013: $21.0 million) is being held on behalf of Te Wānanga o Raukawa Foundation.
