Current review of NZ Creative Arts qualifications

In November 2019, NZQA National Qualifications Services (NQS) sought sector feedback on 26 Creative Arts qualifications to inform the review of the qualifications, and to ensure the suite of qualifications remains relevant and fit for purpose.

The review

An Advisory Group has been set up to provide strategic oversight and direction for the review. At all stages of the review, stakeholders will be kept informed by email and invited to contribute feedback and suggestions.

Working groups, which relate to specific qualifications, are to be established. Expressions of interest to contribute to a working group closed at the end of November 2019.

If you wish to receive email updates and/or establish personal contact regarding this review, please email creativeartsquals.review@nzqa.govt.nz.

Extension of review date

Feedback was sought in March and April 2018 on a proposal to extend the planned review date for 26 Creative Arts qualifications. Consultation closed on 16 April 2018, and versions 1 of the qualifications were republished in May to extend the qualification review date to 31 July 2020.
