skill standards development

We need your feedback!

We are developing new skill standards for Painting & Decorating. 

Reason for the development 

Waihanga Ara Rau is excited to be supporting the painting and decorating industry and we are proposing the development of painting and decorating skill standards that breaks down potential skills and knowledge at Level 2, Level 3, and Level 4, to support learner pathways. Skill standards will be replacing NZQA Unit Standards.

We are seeking the input of industry subject matter experts across all painting and decorating trades to help shape the structure of the potential learner pathways.  

If you would like to represent the industry for this exciting project, please register your interest.
