Unit Standard Overview
32202 Describe and demonstrate the use of Mana Taiohi principles in youth work to enhance mana in a young person
This unit standard is for people working with young people in the youth development sector. This unit standard will eventually replace 22256 Describe the principles, aims and goals of the Youth Development Strategy Aotearoa.
Mana Taiohi is a principle based framework that informs the way people who work with young people work in Aotearoa. Mana Taiohi has evolved from the principles of youth development described in the Youth Development Strategy of Aotearoa (2002). The principles take a Te Ao Māori worldview and are informed by young people, and the people who work with them.
People credited with this unit standard are able to:
- Describe the mana a young person carries, and how this can be enhanced using youth development principles.
- Demonstrate the use of Mana Taiohi principles with a young person.
