Quality Assurance in Education and Training.
New Zealand Qualifications Authority, Wellington.
This document consists of three separately-published booklets all concerned with criteria for accreditation of educational institutions in New Zealand: (1) "Guidelines and Criteria for Registration of Private Training Establishments"; (2) "Guidelines and Criteria for Obtaining Ministerial Approval of Government Training Establishments"; (3) "Guidelines and Criteria for Accreditation to Offer National Certificates and National Diplomas." The first learning units and qualifications registered on the National Qualifications Framework, including requirements for unit and group accreditation, suggestions for the preparation of unit and group accreditation applications, general accreditation, and the conditions surrounding accreditation. A glossary and forms that may be used to apply for unit and group accreditation are included. The second booklet describes procedures for obtaining ministerial approval of government training establishments, including requirements and criteria, application and assessment procedures, and the conditions surrounding approval. Appendices provide an application form, a glossary, and a list of fees and charges. The third booklet, which describes procedures for registering as a provider of private training, explains in an introductory section that the public process resulting in that registration will ensure that the units and qualifications have been endorsed by those who use, grant credit towards, or provide recognition of them. Other sections in the booklet describe registration requirements and criteria, application and evaluation procedures, and the conditions surrounding registration. The appendices provide forms that certify the provider's financial management and that trustees of the provider are responsible for student fees. An application for membership, a glossary, and a list of fees and charges are also included. (CML)
