Qualification Advisory Groups (also known as QAGs) are formed to review a sector’s qualification suite.
Qualification Advisory Groups consist of representatives with experience, knowledge and skills in particular industry sectors.
The groups are responsible for driving the development of qualifications to meet the current and future skills and workforce development needs of industry.
The three core responsibilities for QAGs are:
The time requirement of QAG members varies, depending on the size of each qualification suite.
Where possible, we ask QAG members to commit to seeing each review through to completion, including providing final sign-off and supporting Hanga-Aro-Rau to respond to any queries from the New Zealand Qualification Authority.
A minimum of two face-to-face/online meetings are usually necessary, with further email input and feedback on proposed changes.
