Archive for the ‘ Unit Standard Resources ’ Category

NZQA is seeking feedback on the review of Computing unit standards 2781, 18753, and 18755. http://www.nzqa.govt.nz/about-us/consultations-and-reviews/.

In response to the sector requesting to retain these standards, NQS has reviewed these three standards.

Unit standard 2781 has been reviewed to address duplication with Level 1 achievement standard 91070.

Unit standard 18753 and 18755 have been reviewed to ensure they remain fit for purpose and national in scope.

The consultation period concludes on the 11th May 2012. 

Please complete the feedback form available on the consultation page if you have any comments or you would endorse the changes to these standards.
