Summary of the review and consultation process
As a result of the mandatory targeted review of qualifications, New Zealand Business Qualifications were listed in January 2016. These replaced National Diplomas at Level 5 and Level 6 and included specialist strands. At that time the strands did not include Human Resources or Marketing and Sales, as it was decided during the review these would be addressed in a separate phase of development work.
During 2016, needs analyses were prepared and strands in these areas were developed.
The revised qualifications were consulted on during November/December via the NZQA website.
