Social Work qualifications obtained in New Zealand and recognised by NZ Social Work Registration Board will be assessed as equivalent to Level 4.

All other Social Work qualifications, unless listed on our website as equivalent, will need to be sent to Careerforce for assessment.

New Zealand Nursing Qualifications – If you hold either a NZ Bachelor’s Degree in Nursing, an NZ enrolled nursing qualification or have Registration with the New Zealand Nursing Council and are working as a care and support worker under the Act then your qualification is assessed as equivalent to Level 4.
