As the Industry Training Organisation for the health and wellbeing, youth work and cleaning industries, we work with employers, sector groups and stakeholders to provide quality, accessible and flexible qualifications.
REAL Apprenticeships in the health and wellbeing sectors provide a premier vocational pathway for people working in support roles across the health, social and community sectors.
REAL Apprenticeships are for experienced employees, regardless of their age, and are designed to value, empower and progress the skill and competence of the New Zealand workforce.
A recent New Zealand-wide review made sure all qualifications are useful and relevant to employers and trainees. The New Zealand Qualifications were developed by Careerforce with the health and wellbeing sectors – for the sectors.
This has resulted in a brand new suite of NZQA approved qualifications that ensure workers have the skills and competence to meet the real needs of our changing communities. Over time, the New Zealand qualifications will replace all National Qualifications
As a result of the NZQA Targeted Review of Qualifications (TRoQ), National Qualifications have been phased out and replaced with a suite of New Zealand Qualifications.
