Technical Advisory Groups (also known as TAGs) are formed to review a sector’s suite of unit standards.
Technical Advisory Groups consist of representatives with experience, knowledge and skills in particular industry sectors.
The groups are responsible for driving the development of unit standards to meet the current and future skills and workforce development needs of industry.
The three core responsibilities for TAGs are:
The time requirement of TAG members varies, depending on the number of unit standards to review and/or develop.
Where possible, we ask TAG 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 as well, to feedback on proposed changes.
