Kia ora koutou,
This is an update for learners who will studying towards the New Zealand Diploma in Business (Level 5) after December 31, 2022, including learners who have already started studying.
If your study plan extends into 2023, it’s important that you know:
The new version has been created because we have all been brought together under the new national education provider, Te Pūkenga.
Here’s some further information from Te Pūkenga if you’re interested in learning more:
NZ Diploma of Business (Level 5) – Information and Consultation for Learners
Over the last eighteen months members of our teaching teams have been working collaboratively with Te Pūkenga and teaching teams from other polytechnics who offer this qualification to prepare to move to one unified programme for this qualification. The unified programme will be delivered across Aotearoa New Zealand and continue to meet NZQA and relevant industry requirements.
We’re making this change to enhance consistency and provide an improved experience for all learners undertaking this programme. The revised unified programme for the qualification will be available from semester 1, 2023.
We want to assure you that as an enrolled and current learner you will not be disadvantaged with the programme changes that are being made in the transition to a unified programme. We will ensure that your learning continues without significant disruption or change so you can progress and take the required courses within your programme to meet qualification and industry requirements. If you are a part-time learner you may be affected, therefore, we will make contact with you in the second half of this year to work through an individual transition plan around courses you take to make sure you are not disadvantaged.
More information about programme specific changes and updates which are being made related to this qualification are available for you to read here on our website. If you have any thoughts or feedback about the changes, we are making you can complete the feedback form on our website, by Friday 13th May.
If you have further questions about these changes and what they mean for you, please ask the enrolment coordinator or student advisor you are working with.
Ngā mihi nui,
