Outcome of consultation on proposed qualifications
The consultation on the proposed qualifications carried out between 27 November and 12 December 2014 has now closed.
'Approval to Develop' application outcome
The proposed suite of five new mātauranga Māori qualifications developed in the review of the Ngā Toi Māori qualifications was submitted for 'Approval to Develop' on 18 March 2014.
With the exception of the Level 2 qualification, the application was approved for further development on 29 July 2014, with an overall rating of He Pounamu Whakairo (PDF, 660KB). The Level 2 qualification requires further work and will need to be resubmitted for 'approval to develop'.
Issues raised in the ‘Approval to Develop’ evaluation report were discussed by the Governance Group and have now been addressed. This stage also included the development of the qualification specifications and consistency arrangements.
Collection of evidence of support
During Stage II of the mandatory review process, we will also continue to collate the evidence of support from stakeholders. Those who have been involved in the review process have been asked to submit an attestation form (NZQF 4) and each qualification owner has been asked to complete a change of status form (NZQF 6). If you have been involved, or are a qualification owner, and have not received a form to complete, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
