As you may be aware the Standard Setting Body (SSB) responsibilities for the primary industries are moving from Primary ITO to the Workforce Development Councils (WDCs) on 4 October 2021. These responsibilities include pre-assessment moderation of assessment materials for primary industries competencies, programme submission consultation, and external moderation of Tertiary Education Organisations, and providing endorsement for Consent to Assess applications.
Muka Tangata – People, Food and Fibre WDC, Hanga-Aro-Rau Manufacturing, Engineering and Logistics WDC, and Toi Mai WDC (covering creative industries), will each cover specific industries.
What does this mean for Tertiary Education Organisations?
In order to allow us time to complete all moderation submitted, prior to official handover to the new WDCs, Primary ITO will not able to accept materials for pre-assessment moderation after Friday 10 September 2021.
Any applications for consent to assess will also need to be submitted by Friday 10 September. We are not able to accept submissions after this date.
The new WDCs will be communicating in due course to you about their external moderation processes, including key contact details.
