Digital Technologies and Hangarau Matihiko Level 1 Standards and Resources now available

The Ministry of Education is pleased to announce the release of the revised Level 1 Achievement Standards and associated resources for Digital Technologies and Hangarau Matihiko.

 Included in this package are:

  • The final Achievement Standards, available from NZQA
  • Two Assessment Resources for each internally assessed standard, available from NCEA on TKI. Note that the second set of resources for English Medium will be published later this month.
  • The Teaching and Leaning Guide, available from New Zealand Curriculum Guides – Senior Secondary. This Guide is a partial publication only, with the full content to come as Levels 2 and 3 are introduced.


The Ministry is pleased to announce the initial publication of a new initiative, Teaching and Learning Programmes. These are fully-developed programmes that exemplify teaching and learning of the Digital Technologies and Hangarau Matihiko standards. When complete, they will be classroom-ready, with outlines, resources, and NZQA-endorsed assessment tasks.

The outlines for Level 1 are now available within the Teaching and Learning Guide. The full content will be available early next year.

The release of the replacement Level 1 Digital Technologies and Hangarau Matihiko Achievement Standards signals the start of the decommissioning of the existing Digital Technologies standards.

  • Level 1 will be available for use until Term 1, 2020. 
  • Levels 2 and 3 will be available until Term 1 2021.

The Ministry is grateful for the contributions made by education leaders, teachers, and kaiako towards the development, trialling and refinement of these standards and resources.
