Republication of Recreation and Sport qualification


Republished qualification

National Certificate in Recreation and Sport – Coaching and Instruction with Strands in Cycle Skills Instructor, and Developing Coach [Ref: 1626]


Skills Active Aotearoa Ltd. has republished the qualification listed above.


Date republished                                                                                 October 2018



Reason for the republication


The national qualification was set to expiring during 2016 as part of the Targeted Review of Qualifications (TRoQ) for the Recreation and Sport sector. It became apparent during the development of programmes leading to the replacement qualification that this would not meet the needs of trainees in the Cycle Skills Instructor strand.


A new qualification to meet the needs of the Cycle Skills Instructors is in development, and the extension to the national qualification is required to provide an ongoing training pathway while this development is completed.


The last date of entry to programmes leading to the replaced qualification has been extended to 30 June 2019.


The last date for assessments to take place was not extended and remains at 31 December 2019.
