Ensuring consistency of qualification outcomes

This QED Associates workshop is intended for people with a primary or supporting role in collating sufficient evidence of consistency of graduate outcomes for New Zealand Qualifications Authority, whether or not there is a Consistency Review scheduled for that qualification.

NZQA have been running Consistency Reviews since 2015 after introducing them in 2014 as part of the Targeted Review of Qualifications, (TRoQ), for all new New Zealand qualifications (not National Qualifications). 

QED Directors have studied NZQA's material and attended the NZQA workshop to best understand their actual requirements and the lived experience for providers. We have also sought and reflected on feedback from PTEs that have been through the Consistency Review process and have also analysed the NZQA reports.  So QED has developed this Consistency of Graduate Outcomes workshop in response to PTE concern that NZQA isn't running enough of their introduction to their Assuring Consistency workshops to meet demand.

The intended outcomes are that participants can:

  1. List NZQA's main requirements for Consistency Review
  2. Explain to colleagues how Consistency Review fits into your quality assurance.
  3. Identify sufficient evidence for a confident Consistency Review.
  4. Prepare analysis of your evidence for your Consistency Review.
  5. Participate successfully in the Consistency Review forum.

This workshop runs from 9:30 to 3:30pm with a 30 minute break for lunch.  The day starts with context about NZQA and their requirements and how consistency fits into an effective overall Quality Assurance system.  In the afternoon we focus on gathering and analysing sufficient evidence for a specific qualification - hopefully you can bring yours along.  This section also includes lessons from current consistency reports to help plan your consistency success.

Previous participants have said “A lot clearer about the expectations of what to include in the review” and “Hugely helpful, I hope I can get done what I need in time”.  In particular, they appreciated having a practical example, clarification of the ‘threshold’ and the evidence required, as well as a plan and timeline for their own consistency review preparation.  “Pieter has once again shared his knowledge of NZQA processes in a way that has given clarity and reassurance".

The usual venue for the QED Code of Practice workshop is the wonderful Lake House Arts Centre, 37 Fred Thomas Drive, Takapuna - just 5 minutes from the Auckland Harbour Bridge and with lots of free parking.  However, we are currently running this workshop online.
