Background for the Mandatory Review of Social Skills Qualifications

'Approval to Develop'

The 'Approval to Develop' process resulted in one qualification being approved for development. The Governance Group was tasked with re-working the one approved qualification to better meet the needs of the learners and to ensure development aligned with NZ Qualifications Framework (NZQF) definitions and level descriptors.

Sector Meeting

On 29 May 2013, NZQA National Qualifications Services held a sector meeting with qualification owners, education organisations, relevant government agencies, advocacy groups and other interested parties to discuss the review of Social Skills qualifications. This meeting was well attended by the sector and provided opportunity for participants to contribute to a needs analysis, which is required to justify the development of new qualifications.
