WDC programme endorsement considerations

WDC endorsement considerations

The Muka Tangata tīma is committed to providing guidance for providers to develop and gain approval for high quality programmes. WDC considerations for programme endorsement differ from NZQA approval criteria and look to meet both industry and learner vocational education and training needs, while also contributing to an education system that honours Te Tiriti o Waitangi and supports Māori Crown relations.

WDCs have worked together and alongside NZQA to develop the programme endorsement considerations, which are the same across all WDCs. 

We focus on six considerations: 

  • Programme content 
  • Equity for learners 
  • Programme engagement and consultation
  • Te ao Māori
  • Pacific languages and learners
  • Disabled people
