Careerforce has been working with industry representatives to develop new unit standards in Suicide Prevention/Intervention, designed for people working in non-suicide-specialist roles in Social Services.

The two unit standards are now ready for circulation and feedback, after which they will be submitted to NZQA for approval and listing on the New Zealand Qualifications Framework.

Select the unit standard title to read the unit standard documents.
