Work and Study Skills



NZQA National Qualifications Services has completed the review of the unit standard listed above.


Date new version published                                                             September 2013


Planned review date                                                                           December 2015




This unit standard has been reviewed as part of NZQA National Qualification Services planned review cycle.  It was originally developed in collaboration with Aviation, Travel and Tourism Industry Training Organisation (now Service IQ).


NZQA moderators identified that the intent of the standard was not clear and areas required clarification. 


All Schools and Tertiary Education Organisations with consent to assess were advised of the review and invited to contribute through an email consultation process.  A draft was distributed to those who had fed back and/or had registered an interest in being part of the review process.  Feedback received informed the final draft.  There is support from stakeholders for the final draft.


Main changes


·      The title has been changed to clarify the intent of the standard. 

·      Explanatory notes, outcomes and evidence requirements have been amended for clarity.  The requirement for candidates to be supervised has been removed, and explanatory notes regarding assessment in workplace/simulated situations and compliance with the Privacy Act are now included.  The outcome now includes a range with information that was previously contained in the explanatory note.

·      A planned review date of December 2015 has been set to align it with other Work and Study Skills standards.


The last date for assessment for version 1 of the standard is 31 December 2015.  Results will not be accepted where the assessment date is after the last date for assessment of the superseded version of the standard.
