Review of: NZC in Cleaning L2 with optional endorsement in Health Care Facilities Cleaning, NZC in Cleaning L3 with optional strands in Specialist Cleaning and Supervision

Careerforce has undertaken a major qualification review which has involved extensive consultation with stakeholders.

The consultation phase took place between July and September 2019. We thank all stakeholders for their active participation and valuable feedback.

We have now received confirmation from the New Zealand Qualifications Authority (NZQA) that the recommended changes to the cleaning qualifications have been approved.

The credit values for Cleaning Level 2 remains the same while Cleaning Level 3 has increased from 40-50 credits to 45-50 credits. These qualifications have strengthened communications as a competency for cleaners, a feedback that came through strongly from stakeholders.

 

The following qualifications are now listed on the New Zealand Qualifications Framework (NZQF):

2316: New Zealand Certificate in Cleaning (Level 2) with optional strand in Health Care Facilities Cleaning v.2 (40 credits)
