New proposed IT qualifications February 28th, 2022 We would like your thoughts on the following proposed new qualifications: NZ Certificate in Machine Learning (Level 5) NZ Certificate in Applied Software Development (Level 6). The NZ Certificate in Machine Learning (Level 5) has been developed in partnership with Queenstown Resort College and addresses the needs of both learners and industry to meet a growing demand for qualified developing Machine Learning practitioners. The NZ Certificate in Applied Software Development (Level 6) has been developed in partnership with Enspiral Dev Academy and addresses an immediate need for more software developers. It is designed to facilitate fast entry into the tech sector by providing more accessible training pathways for career changers and those from minority groups to enter the tech industry. We are now seeking feedback by 20th March on the draft qualifications before they are submitted to NZQA for approval to list. See the review and developments webpage for more information including surveys and feedback documents.
