A new approach to quality assurance April 13th, 2023 Part of our mandate to enhance vocational education and training to meet industry needs includes working with providers on quality assurance and moderation activities. We work to support providers to deliver quality programmes for ākonga (learners). Over the last year we have worked to find out how we can best work with providers and develop fit-for-purpose quality systems. We have heard that providers see value in moderation that supports them to improve programmes. Industry have also told us of the value they place on external moderation to ensure that education and training is robust, and that moderation improves provider materials and practices. In 2023, we will continue to build on our relationships with providers, endorse programmes and carry out site visits. Read more about our approach to quality assurance here.
