The SOI and this document describe the strategic objectives we are seeking to achieve, how we will undertake our functions and operations to achieve those intentions, and how it will assess its performance.

The information outlined in this SPE enables the public, Ministers, Parliament and external monitoring agencies to track NZQA’s progress towards achieving the objectives set out in the SOI 2016/17–2019/20. NZQA has four reportable output classes funded by the Government through Vote Education:

Output Class 1: Provision of information and advisory services:

This includes community consultation and communication and ministerial support. This output class contributes to the three achievement areas in NZQA’s SOI:

  • New Zealand’s qualifications meet the needs of learners and employers, and enhance New Zealand’s social and economic outcomes
  • Trust and confidence in education outcomes for the non-university tertiary education sector
  • Trust and confidence in robust secondary school level assessment.

Output Class 2: Quality assurance:

This includes the delivery of quality assurance processes, the management of risk in the tertiary education sector (non-university) and the Administration of the Education (Pastoral Care of International Students) Code of Practice 2016.

This output class contributes to the SOI achievement area: Trust and confidence in education outcomes for the non-university tertiary education sector.

Output Class 3: Qualifications support structures:

This includes the development and maintenance of the New Zealand Qualifications Framework (NZQF) and ensuring the credibility of standards and qualifications, overseas qualifications assessment and recognition, and international liaison.

This output class contributes to the SOI achievement area: New Zealand’s qualifications meet the needs of learners and employers, and enhance New Zealand’s social and economic outcomes.

Output Class 4: Secondary school assessments:
