National Qualifications, in 2017

Overview

QED don't intend to offer training towards the National qualifications after December 2017 - see new NZ qualifications for more on the new modules and qualifications. 

However if you hold credits towards the National Certificate in Adult Education & Training you have the option of continuing to gain credit for these qualifications by continuing to undertake appropriate modules for the NZ Certificates in Adult and Tertiary Teaching and gaining the National Certificate rather than the NZ Certificate. To determine the most logical route for you call Andy Leader on 027 2224180.

Until the review by the TROQ process in 2017, there were three national qualifications in adult education and training and two in adult literacy and numeracy: check with us to find out how the credits for these can be used towards the new NZ Diplomas.

National Certificate in Adult Education & Training (Level 4) is made up of 40 credits and is the entry level qualification for people working in the field of adult education and training. It satisfies most NZQA and Industry Training Organisation requirements for teaching staff in tertiary education and training. There are no pre-requisites to entry.

National Certificate in Adult Education & Training (Level 5) is made up of 60 credits and provides additional higher level skills and knowledge for people working in the field of adult education and training. There are no pre-requisites to entry.

National Diploma in Adult Education & Training (Level 6) is made up of 120 credits and provides a higher level professional qualification for people working in the field of adult education and training. There are no pre-requisites to entry.

National Certificate in Adult Literacy and Numeracy Education (Vocational/Workplace) (Level 5) is made up of 40 credits and is designed to develop skills and knowledge in literacy and numeracy education for existing teachers/trainers and workplace educators in the sector.  It is a requirement of some Industry Training Organisations. There are no pre-requisites to entry.

National Certificate in Adult Literacy and Numeracy Education (Educator) (Level 5) is made up of 81 credits and provides additional specialist skills and knowledge in literacy and numeracy education for people seeking a progression from the 40 credit Vocational/Workplace qualification. There are no pre-requisites to entry.
