Approved for Listing

The following qualifications can now be accessed through the NZQA website links below or by searching for the qualification reference number or title.

What’s next

Now that the qualifications are listed, providers will need to obtain programme approval or provider accreditation to deliver an approved programme before they can offer the new qualifications.
