Publishing statutory actions information on the NZQA website

Closed 05 May 2017

The New Zealand Qualifications Authority (NZQA) is seeking feedback from stakeholders on its intention to publish statutory actions information on the NZQA website.

This is a move towards greater transparency and accountability of education organisations.

Publishing this information would provide domestic and international students, and the wider public, with more complete and accurate information on the performance and any regulatory decisions made by NZQA in relation to the activities of a non-university tertiary education organisation or a Education (Pastoral Care of International Students) Code of Practice 2016 (the Code) signatory.

Read the consultation information and take the survey

Once you have read all the consultation information, tell us what you think by taking the feedback survey. This survey is open until Friday 5 May 2017.

Feedback will be analysed and NZQA will provide a summary of findings and the relevant decisions in June 2017.

How will NZQA use my responses?

Feedback will be aggregated so individual responses cannot be identified. Your response will only be used in relation to this specific consultation.

Releasing public information under the Official Information Act 1982

NZQA is sometimes asked, under the Official Information Act 1982 (the OIA), for copies of submissions on the public feedback it undertakes. NZQA values openness and transparency, and submissions will be released when requested.

The OIA Act allows some information to be withheld to uphold New Zealand law and citizens' rights. Information is sometimes withheld to protect the privacy of individuals, commercial sensitivities of organisations, as well as details of any cases still being processed through the New Zealand justice system.

If you believe that releasing your personal details or any part of your submission will be prejudicial to you or your organisation, you can provide a reason with your submission or if NZQA contacts you about a relevant OIA request.
