Approval of programmes at levels 1-6 - overview

For a programme at levels 1-6 on the New Zealand Qualifications Framework (NZQF) to be approved, it must lead to a listed NZQF qualification and have a structure and components that allow learners to achieve the associated graduate profile.

It must also have an appropriate NZQF level, credit value and amount of learning, and be designed to meet the specific identified needs of learners.

It must show a progression of knowledge and skills and how the learning outcomes will be assessed.

This applies to programmes delivered by institutes of technology/polytechnics, wānanga and private training establishments or organised by industry training organisations.
