2024 Development of a Storytelling Skill Standard – Level 3

We would love to hear from you by 19 April 2024

Ringa Hora Services Workforce Development Council is seeking feedback on a proposed new storytelling skill standard by 19 April 2024. 

The draft storytelling skill standard has been developed in collaboration with industry from the services sectors, in particular the tourism sector. However, we are hearing that storytelling skills may be relevant to other industries as well, so we are seeking a broader range of views to help us ensure the standard is relevant and transferable to a range of potential sectors. 

The proposed level 3 skill standard Perform as a storyteller for visitors is available here.  It includes basic skills that a Storyteller needs, like telling coherent stories to visitors, providing manaakitanga, and demonstrating cross-cultural communication to connect with diverse audiences.  

Provide your feedback 

We are keen to hear from you and consider your ideas for this new and exciting project.  

If you would like to comment on the draft standard or provide other feedback to inform the development, then please email us with your feedback at [email protected] with ‘Storytelling’ in the subject line, by Friday 19 April 2024.
