2023 Development of Contractor Skill Standard – Contractor Level 3

Skills Standard 40059

Ringa Hora and Toi Mai in conjunction with other Workforce Development Council (WDC’s) have collaborated to create a skill standard for contractors at level 3 in the Business domain. These are basic skills that a contractor needs, like calculating GST, interpreting contracts, and making quotes etc. Our thinking is that these skills will apply to any contractor in any industry, which is why we sought a wider consultation to help us create a generic standard for our akonga in any industry thinking about being a contractor.   

We would like to thank everyone who sent their feedback regarding this skill standard. The skills standard has now been approved by NZQA and is available here. The change report of this skills standard can be viewed here
