Consistency of graduate outcomes - overview
Assuring national consistency of graduate outcomes applies to New Zealand qualifications listed on the New Zealand qualification framework (NZQF) at levels 1-6.
All tertiary education organisations awarding New Zealand qualifications at levels 1-6 must participate in consistency reviews.
The reviews, facilitated by an independent reviewer, consider the quality of the evidence presented by each tertiary education organisation. This is to decide if the evidence is sufficient and if national consistency of the qualification can be confirmed.
Consistency reviews and any follow up are managed by NZQA.
For more information see the assuring national consistency of graduate outcomes of New Zealand qualifications page.
