Qualifications and standards

Reviews and developments

NZQA Qualifications Services is responsible for the development, maintenance and review of nationally recognised assessment standards (generic and Field Māori) to support industry, employer, hapū, iwi and Government goals.

Introduction

We work with industry, employers, professional groups, Whakaruruhau and other stakeholders to develop assessment standards that are nationally recognised and fit for purpose. NZQA has two standard setting bodies (SSB) responsible for the quality and credibility of the assessment standards that are submitted to NZQA for listing.

Māori Qualifications Services

Māori Qualifications Services works collaboratively with Whakaruruhau and other stakeholders to develop Mātauranga Māori qualifications, and standards in Field Māori. MQS also develops assessment support materials for tutors and promotes the uptake of Mātauranga Māori qualifications.

Mātauranga Māori assessment standards cater specifically to Māori knowledge, pedagogy, and skills, and enable the portability of Māori skills and knowledge within the national education system.

Mātauranga Māori qualifications have been developed with a Māori world view and in consultation with whānau, hapū, and iwi; and with the guidance and expertise of Governance and Working Groups.
