EER Category 1 and 2 providers

Note: the process for external evaluation and review (EER) Category 1 and 2 providers to follow when seeking approval for a new permanent delivery site can be found at Approval of delivery sites.

EER Category 3 and 4 providers

The guide below is intended to support EER Category 3 and 4 tertiary education organisations (TEOs) during the approval process for a new permanent teaching or delivery site.

NZQA requires EER Category 3 and 4 TEOs to notify Client Services where it intends to deliver at a temporary site. Notification is required before delivery occurs at the new temporary site.

Please note that programmes at levels 7 and above on the New Zealand Qualifications Framework are subject to accreditation that is delivery site-specific. For more information see Changes to programme approvals.
