All accredited education organisations assessing against Careerforce unit standards are required to undergo moderation.

Cluster moderation workshops

The 2017 moderation workshop timetable can be downloaded here.

If you have any questions, please email our National Moderator.

Moderation forms

Careerforce provides a series of forms and templates to assist with Pre and Post Moderation.

Education organisation forms

Our training is predominantly employer led, however other providers can deliver Careerforce qualifications with NZQA approval. Your organisation will need to apply for consent to assess, before you can start assessing Careerforce unit standards and qualifications.

Education providers can order assessor guides for those unit standards within their scope to assess.

Careerforce provides a cover page to attach to assessments. You can access this template here.

Appealing moderation decisions

Any organisation or individual with consent to assess may lodge an appeal against a moderation decision or process.

The first step is to seek a negotiated solution with the National Moderator.

If informal negotiation cannot resolve the issue then a written appeal should be lodged with Careerforce’s Manager, Products and Marketing. This appeal should include all relevant documentation and be lodged within 20 working days from when the final decision of the informal negotiation is communicated. The appeal will be investigated by Careerforce as soon as practicable and a decision reached within 20 working days of receipt of the appeal.

If resolution is not achieved, the CEO of Careerforce will make a final determination and decision for all parties.

The latest version of our Moderation Handbook is currently under development. If you have questions or require further information regarding moderation and the moderation process, please email our national moderator.

We welcome feedback on unit standards. If a unit standard is causing you concern or you wish to make suggestions please email our national moderator.
