Sheep, Beef, Deer and Wool industry

Qualification Development Projects

In-progress projects

In August 2023 we initiated a project to work with industry to develop four micro-credentials to support the wool harvesting industry. Development of Wool Harvesting micro-credentials 2023 – Muka Tangata.

We are working with industry leaders and vocational education and training bodies to research, analyse and construct a workable solution for the industry.

Review scope:

The Wool industry has acknowledged the lack of a successful industry training model.

This work is informed by research undertaken by the Food and Fibre Centre of Vocational Excellence and work we are doing to map non-formal training delivery to formal qualification development.

Key steps:

  • Hold an initial wānanga for a Wool Harvesting micro-credential development project.
  • Work with representative participants to develop micro-credentials and standards for the Wool industry.
  • Submit micro-credentials and standards to NZQA.
  • Micro-credentials published by NZQA and available for use by training providers.
