NITT students most important priority for NZQA

01 Apr 2019

New Zealand Institute of Technical Training Limited’s (NITT’s) registration as a private training establishment has been cancelled so it can no longer continue to deliver its New Zealand Certificate in English Language.

This follows on from NZQA’s decision of 18 March 2019 to withdraw NITT’s accreditation to provide the New Zealand Diploma in Business (Level 5 and Level 6) due to ongoing concerns with NITT’s assessment and moderation.

NITT was issued a compliance notice on 18 March 2019 and they failed to comply.

Acting Deputy Chief Executive, Quality Assurance, Rebecca Boyack said it was very disappointing that NITT had failed to meet the standards required of a registered training provider.

“NZQA has a role to ensure New Zealand’s qualifications are credible and robust nationally and internationally. Where providers are not meeting the standards, we expect of them, NZQA will take action to ensure the integrity of New Zealand’s tertiary education system and that is what we’ve done in this case.

“The priority now is to support students. We have communicated with affected students by providing information on how to obtain refunds and identify providers where they can continue their studies. We will continue to liaise with other government agencies to get the best outcomes for students,” says Rebecca Boyack.
