Reviews deferred - New Zealand Certificates in English Language (NZCEL) and English for Academic (EAP) unit standards

22 Mar 2022

NZQA is deferring planned reviews of the New Zealand Certificates in English Language (NZCEL) and English for Academic (EAP) unit standards for a year, from December 2022 to December 2023.

While some initial work may be started earlier, the deferral aims to give schools and tertiary providers a reasonable opportunity to provide feedback, following the disruption currently being caused by COVID-19. A deferral will also allow NZCEL and EAP to be considered alongside changes to literacy and te reo matatini arising through the NCEA Change programme.

A year’s deferral will also support the recovery of international education, while allowing any concerns about the current NZCEL and EAP to be addressed in a timely way.

English Language (EL) unit standards are due to be reviewed in 2023.
