Registering as a PTE - overview
A private training establishment (PTE) must be registered with NZQA if the establishment wants to develop, deliver or use qualifications listed on the New Zealand Qualifications Framework and standards listed on the Directory of Assessment Standards.
The registration process ensures that the PTE meets all legislative requirements for an educational organisation, including NZQA rules.
The PTE must have governing members who are suitable for delivering education with adequate staff, and equipment and facilities for the education delivered. Furthermore, the PTE must be financially stable with sound quality management systems and practices.
For more information see the registration of a new private training establishment page.
