December 2013 – April 2014
Consultation on the new Creative Arts qualifications was held December 2013 and January 2014. The majority of feedback was supportive of the new qualifications. With Creative Arts Governance Group (CAGG) agreement, a suite of new Creative Arts qualifications was first submitted for 'Approval to Develop' in January 2014.
A gap in the suite of Jewellery qualifications was identified post-submission of the application for 'Approval to Develop'. It was identified that qualifications would also be needed for Jewellery Industry Registration Board of New Zealand (JIRBNZ) graduates (apprentices).
April – October 2014
In April 2014 National Qualifications Services (NQS) received approval to develop the suite of Creative Arts qualifications.
With the approval to develop received, working groups reconvened during May-August 2014 to focus on refining the draft qualifications to include specifications and conditions relating to the qualifications and graduate profile outcomes.
Consultation on the refined draft qualifications occurred during July-October 2014. See July-October 2014 consultation documents for further details.

The analyst considered the application and provided feedback on 12 February 2015, requesting additional information and some alterations to the draft qualifications. The response to this was provided in March 2015.
