Main changes resulting from the review

 

      These qualifications will be discontinued as a result of the mandatory review of qualifications. Qualification developer status for the reviewed qualifications, above, will remain with MQS until the qualifications are discontinued.

      The qualifications will be discontinued from 31 December 2019.

      The National Certificate in Reo Māori Media (Introductory Media Skills) (Level 3) [Ref: 1629] contained unit standards that had expired and as a result the total credits have reduced from 72 to 64.

      National Diploma in Reo Māori Media (Level 5) with strands in Radio, and Journalism [Ref: 1146] contained unit standards that had expired and as a result the total credits have reduced from 122 to 115.
