Core Generic

Work and Study Skills



The NZ Motor Industry Training Organisation (Inc) has completed the revision and rollover of the unit standard listed above and transferred the standard setting responsibility to the New Zealand Qualifications Authority (NZQA) National Qualification Services (NQS).


Date new versions published                                                          April 2013


Planned review date                                                                           December 2015




The reason for the revision was to transfer the standard setting responsibility for this standard to NZQA NQS, as the outcomes are generic and do not warrant an industry-specific standard.  The standard has also been rolled over to extend its planned review date.


The standard has been transferred to Consent and Moderation Requirements (CMR) 0023 as the specific criteria for consent to assess against this standard and the national external moderation requirements are consistent with the Work and Study Skills domain.

·      Standard Setting Body changed to NZQA NQS.

·      CMR changed from 0114 to 0023.


Impact on existing organisations with consent to assess
