Careerforce, as the qualification developer has commenced a scheduled qualification review of the New Zealand Certificate in Health and Wellbeing (Primary Care Practice Assistance) (Level 4).

A qualification review ensures that qualifications remain needed, fit-for-purpose, and meets the needs of the industry. As part of the review, we wish to seek your feedback on the strategic purpose, graduate profile outcomes, education and employment pathways of the qualification. 

Any programme that leads to the awarding of the qualification is not part of this qualification review, but may be part of a future programme review.
