Programme Approval and Provider Accreditation

Providers will need to obtain programme approval and provider accreditation to deliver an approved programme before they can offer the qualifications. A programme change will be required before current providers can offer the reviewed versions of the qualifications – see Changes to programme approvals.

The New Zealand Certificates for secondary schools webpage provides information for those wanting to be accredited to offer an approved programme towards New Zealand qualifications at levels 1-6 (non-NCEA) in a school-based setting.

As part of the NZQA programme approval process, providers will need to obtain a letter of endorsement from the relevant WDC – in this case Ringa Hora Services WDC.  See here for more information on programme endorsement.
