Careerforce is the New Zealand Industry Training Organisation (ITO) for the health, mental health, aged care, disability, social services, youth work, cleaning and pest management sectors. We provide quality, accessible and flexible qualifications and supports.
As an ITO, works closely with stakeholders and employers across our sectors to identify their workforce skill requirements and standards. Working with the New Zealand Qualifications Authority (NZQA), we are responsible for developing these standards into nationally recognised qualifications (New Zealand Certificates or Diplomas), with regular reviews to ensure they continue to meet the evolving needs of the workforce.
As the New Zealand Qualifications Authority (NZQA) appointed qualification developer for Health & Wellbeing qualifications, we have commenced a major review of a number of qualifications. This is a requirement of the NZQA for all qualifications listed within the New Zealand Qualifications Framework (NZQF), but also good practice to ensure they remain fit for purpose.
A number of qualifications are under review. We encourage all stakeholders to actively participate in the consultation process.
We are consulting on unit standards that may be new or expiring. We encourage programme providers, assessors and other stakeholders to participate in the review.
