Thank you to all who have participated in the qualification review for the New Zealand Certificate in Health and Wellbeing (Peer Support) (Level 4).

We have completed feedback gathering as of 27 Nov 2019 and are now pleased to share the findings and our recommendations. 

The online consultation responses and the stakeholder engagements demonstrate a strong level of support for the qualification.  

The findings showed a strong level of agreement with all aspects of the qualification.  However, the qualification required minor updating to address the different sectors that have peer support workforces, use of language, reflect the importance of the skills and cultural competency to respectfully engage with Māori and address the importance of self-care as a peer support worker.
Careerforce recommends minor changes to the strategic purpose, other requirements of the qualification, general conditions for programmes, all Graduate Profile Outcomes (GPO) wording and the credit values of GPO’s 2 and 3. The overall credit value remains unchanged at 120 credits.
