Careerforce is reviewing two Social Services unit standards that are currently listed on the Directory of Assessment Standards (DAS) at level 3.

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 Friday, 6 December 2019.

The following changes have been made to both standards:

  • Formatting now complies with NZQA’s current template.
  • References to legislation, codes and documentation have been updated;
  • 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.

Careerforce proposes that no changes are made to the purpose, outcomes and performance criteria to either unit standard.

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