Mandatory review of Teacher Education qualifications levels 2-6

Outcome of the review

Qualifications developed under the mandatory review of Teacher Education qualifications (Levels 2-6) were approved and listed on the New Zealand Qualifications Framework (NZQF) in February 2016. Qualification developers were confirmed in September 2016.

Providers can now obtain programme approval or provider accreditation to deliver approved programmes leading to the new qualifications.

Unit standards development and review project

NZQA’s Qualifications Services is reviewing relevant, and developing new, unit standards that can be used for assessment towards some of the qualifications.

Updates on reviews of unit standards leading to these qualifications are available at the unit standard reviews and developments webpage.

Cross-crediting

Providers can design programmes at Level 5 that lead to both Adult and Tertiary Teaching and Adult Literacy and Numeracy Education (ALNE) qualifications. There are opportunities for cross-crediting between the following qualifications in the embedding of literacy and numeracy, and other areas, where the same skills and knowledge are required for each qualification:

  • New Zealand Certificate in Adult and Tertiary Teaching (Level 5) [Ref: 2993]
  • New Zealand Certificate in Adult Literacy and Numeracy Education (Vocational/Workplace) (Level 5) [Ref: 2754]
  • New Zealand Certificate in Adult Literacy and Numeracy Education (Educator) (Level 5) [Ref: 2755]
