Transition periods

Standards 11281 and 18203 have been designated expiring. Standard 11281, partly replaced by new standard 30421, has a last date for assessment of 31 December 2021. Standard 18203, replaced by standard 30423, has a last date for assessment of 31 December 2020. These transition periods allow time for providers to adjust their programmes and resources to the new standards.

Previous versions of reviewed standards have a last date for assessment of 31 December 2019.

Main changes to the standards

  • Unit standards 11281 and 18203 were replaced by two new unit standards respectively.
  • The credit values and levels were considered in the context of the qualifications and have been amended to better reflect the level of the content in the standards and the amount of work required.
  • Following feedback from consultation, unit standard 4098 was rolled over until December 2018 to allow further discussions about its future to be carried out.

See the ‘Review and revision and rollover of Adult Education and Training and Generic Education and Training unit standards’ change report for more details.
