Consent to assess

Providers must apply through NZQA to gain consent for any unit standards they intend to assess.

Applications must be supported by the relevant Workforce Development Council. Where we are the standard setting body, Waihanga Ara Rau will provide a letter of support which attests if the provider has successfully met our Consent and Moderation Requirements (CMR).

How to apply

Providers can complete an application form for Waihanga Ara Rau support for consent to assess. Please email the completed form to [email protected].

Please note that NZQA makes the final decision on the consent to assess application, and the process is not completed until NZQA has granted consent to assess to the applicant organisation. Visit NZQA for more information on the NZQA process.
