Five Witt employees have been suspended as an investigation into its Maori performing arts course continues.

A memo obtained by the Taranaki Daily News says the employees have been stood down pending the outcome of the investigation into its National Certificate in Maori Performing Arts Course (Level 4).

The five staff include three Maori performing arts course tutors and two staff from its Te Wananga Maori department.

Last month, the Daily News revealed the course had come under scrutiny after a complaint was laid in mid-May, alleging students had graduated without completing the required coursework.

The Daily News understands the complaint came from one of the 222 students enrolled in the 2012 programme.
