    Summary of review and consultation process

    In 2002, the New Zealand Qualifications Authority (NZQA) took stock of the qualifications and unit standards it was responsible for developing. A prioritisation and rationalisation exercise carried out by National Qualifications Services (NQS) in September 2002 aimed at rationalising the work of NZQA to ensure that the unit standards and qualifications for which NQS was responsible were relevant, useful, and met the current needs of learners, providers, the community, and government. Careful consideration was given to the process to ensure that the unit standards retained by NQS reflected its responsibilities in relation to the Industry Training Act 1992, and national priorities including those expressed in the Tertiary Education Strategy and Statement of Tertiary Education Priorities (STEPs).

    The decision was made for NQS to exit from standard setting responsibilities in Christian Ministries and Christian Studies national qualifications and unit standards by 2007. There has been extensive consultation with the sector, including providers, since 2002 and this has confirmed the decision to designate the qualification and unit standards as expiring.

    This review does not include the following eight high-use unit standards, which have been included in the review of the unit standards in domain Understanding Religion: 5971, 5985, 5990, 6023, 6032, 6034, 6048, & 9743. The Understanding Religion review began in November 2009.

Main changes resulting from the review

    The above qualifications and unit standards were designated expiring and will not be replaced.

    Unit standard 8530 has been amended to clarify the intent of element 3 during the transition period. The amended version is reproduced in the Appendix to this report.

    Unit standards and qualifications categorised as category D expire at the end of December 2012.

Impact on existing provider accreditations

Impact on Accreditation and Moderation Action Plans (AMAPs)
