Business qualifications review 2012
Consultation on proposed business qualification outcome statements
The Business Qualifications Review Governance Group consulted on a suite of proposed business qualifications (PDF, 110KB) at NZQF levels 3 to 6. These qualifications will, in time, replace existing business qualifications.
This is the basis of the application for further development (DOC, 167KB).
Proposal for business qualifications and their relationships
The Governance Group thanks all who responded to the initial proposal for qualifications and their relationships.
Governance Group News
The Governance Group has appointed three new members with recent and direct experience in business:
As a result of the increase in its membership from 8 to 11, the Governance Group has decided to increase the quorum for meetings and the minimum for decision making from 5 to 6.

Ko te hua i puta ka piki te tokomaha o ngā mema mai i te 8 ki te 11, ka mutu i whakatauria e te Rōpū Whakahaere kia tokomaha ake te reo mōtini mai i te 5 ki te 6.
Governance Group / Rōpū Whakahaere
The Governance Group has developed a needs analysis to justify the new qualifications it is developing, including a commissioned literature review. This is a living document and will be updated as more information is available.
Kua waihangatia e te rōpū whakahaere i tētahi tātari matea: needs analysis hei whakamārama i ngā tohu hou me ngā whakanikotanga me te arotahi ki tētahi arotake mātātuhi. E whakanikongia ana tēnei tūtohinga ki ngā whakamāhuki o te wā.
Progress on the review of business qualifications
Ngā hua kua puta i te arotakenga tohu mātauranga pakihi
Planning began in 2011 with extensive consultation with current owners of Business qualifications, including meetings in Dunedin, Wellington, and Auckland. As a result, the Qualifications Services (QS formerly QD&TM) business unit of NZQA was invited to act as lead facilitator, on behalf of current owners, to establish governance arrangements for the review.
Two consultations on proposed arrangements followed, in September/October and November/December 2011. As a result, a meeting was held on 6-7 March 2012 that was representative of current owners and national peak bodies: the meeting decided to establish a Governance Group to oversee the review, agreed Terms of Reference, and determined selection criteria and a selection process.
The purpose of the Governance Group was agreed to: "provide leadership and direction for the development of cohesive New Zealand business qualifications which are strategically relevant to New Zealand’s people and communities and their aspirations". The minutes of this representative group meeting are available below.
Applications for Governance Group membership were invited later in March and the members were selected and announced in April.
I tīmataria tēnei kaupapa i te tau 2011 me te pāhekoheko me ngā kaipupuri tohu mātauranga pakihi ki Otepoti, Te Whanganui a Tara me Tāmaki Makaurau. Ko te putanga i hua ko te wāhanga pakihi o NZQA (QS) - Te Roopu Mana Tohu. I pōhiritia tēnei rōpū hei māngai, hei whakatū hoki i ngā whakaritenga whakahaere mō te arotakenga.
E rua ngā hui i whakaritea hei kohi i ngā whakahautanga i tū i te Mahuru/Whiringa-ā-nuku- September/October me ngā marama o Whiringa-ā-rangi/Hakihea 2011- November/December. Ko te otinga atu i whakaritea he hui i te 6-7 o Poutū te rangi 2012 e whakakanohi ana i ngā kaipupuri ponga, me ngā rōpū matua ā motu. I takatūngia te Rōpū Whakahaere hei tirotiro i te arotakenga me ngā whakawhitinga paearu mahi- Terms of Reference me ngā momo tukanga kōwhiri.
Ko te whāinga o te Rōpū Whakahaere: he ārahi i i te whakawhanaketanga o ngā tohu mātauranga pakihi o Aotearoa kia pakari, otirā kia hāngai pū ki ngā tūmanako o ngā tāngata o Aotearoa me ngā hāpori. Ko ngā kohinga kōrero mō tērā o ngā hui kei raro iho nei.
Ko ngā pukatono mō ēnei tūnga i puta i te marama o Poutū-te-rangi ā i kōwhiria ngā mema i te marama o Paengawhāwhā.
