Careerforce is reviewing two Human Services unit standards that are currently listed on the Directory of Assessment Standards (DAS) at levels 3 and 4.

We invite stakeholders and programme providers to provide feedback on the revised unit standards.

If your organisation wishes to comment on the proposed amended units, please reply to before the close of business on Wednesday 27 November 2019.  

The following changes have been made to both standards:

  • Formatting now complies with NZQA’s current template. Please note that ‘Outcome’ is NZQA’s current syntax – this replaces the term ‘Element’.
  • References to legislation, codes and documentation have been updated and expanded;
  • Edits have been made to wording in the standards for greater clarity; 
  • The last date for assessment using the current versions of these standards is 31 December 2021.

Select the unit standard titles to read the revised unit standard document.

Unit Standard Title Level Credit
16874 Demonstrate an ability to support a person with a communication impairment 4 5
23373 Demonstrate knowledge of the impact of mental illness on a person with intellectual disability 3 3
