Review of Adult Education and Training and Generic Education and Training unit standards

Open for Consultation 10 May 2017 - 31 May 2017

NZQA National Qualifications Services invites feedback on 27 reviewed unit standards in the Adult Education and Training (AET) and Generic Education and Training (GET) subfields.

This review follows the earlier development of standards for the Adult and Tertiary Teaching qualifications and is happening alongside the development of standards for the Assessment qualifications.

Comment is invited on any aspect of this review, especially on the nine standards which have been significantly amended (but without materially affecting the outcome).  These standards are shown in the table below with their ID number highlighted.

Please note that the unit standard template has changed. Explanatory notes are now referred to as Guidance information (GI) and Evidence requirements are now called Performance criteria (PCs).

Important note: These draft standards are for consultation purposes only. No assessment can occur against these standards until the listed versions are published.
