Consent to assess

Toi Mai will support consent to assess applications where we are the standard-setting body

How to apply

Providers (including schools) must apply to NZQA for consent to assess any unit standards they intend to assess and meet the requirements of the appropriate Consent and Moderation Requirements.

As part of the NZQA application process, providers will need to supply a letter of support from the relevant Workforce Development Council. This letter attests that the provider meets the specific industry requirements, including having the resources to effectively deliver and assess the unit standards.

Providers will need to complete an application form for Toi Mai support for consent to assess. Once completed, please email the form to [email protected]

Important to note:

  • 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.
  • If engaging with an external provider for the delivery or assessment of your unit standards, you will need a formal Memorandum of Understanding alongside your consent to assess application form. See our MoU guidance document in the resources below.
  • A separate consent to assess application form has been developed for Waka Ama – see below for more information.

Consent to Assess for Waka Ama

We have developed a dedicated application form for the Waka Ama unit standards 30810 and 30811 for kura/schools to use when applying for these unit standards.

The general consent to assess application form does not apply to the above unit standards, as Waka Ama clubs are used to provide resources.

Once completed, please email the form to [email protected]
