For providers (including schools)
The national external moderation system provides assurance in the quality of assessment carried out by organisations with consent to assess.
We support consent to assess applications where they are the standard setting body.
If you are developing a programme that leads to a qualification listed on the NZQF, the Education and Training Act requires you to get the programme approved by NZQA. If you are interested in delivering a programme, you also need to be accredited as a provider of that programme.
We are responsible for the development and maintenance of Consent and Moderation Requirements (CMR) documents.
We are responsible for developing and maintaining qualifications, and developing, setting, and maintaining unit standards for the industries in our coverage area.
Guidance documents are available to support providers developing programmes that lead result in the award of the following qualifications listed below.
