Consent to Assess
***NOTE: Primary ITO is no longer accepting Consent to Assess applications. These should be emailed directly to the Muka Tangata People, Food and Fibre WDC from the 4th October 2021 at consent to assess.
Consent to Assess involves evaluating a Tertiary Education Organisation’s (TEO’s) ability to deliver training and assessment for specific unit standards or domains on the NZ Qualifications Framework. In order to deliver and report credits for Primary ITO unit standards, TEO’s must gain consent to assess for those unit standards.
If you would like to gain Consent to Assess or increase your current consent against Primary ITO's unit standards, you will need to apply to the New Zealand Qualifications Authority (NZQA) - but first, you must seek a letter of support from Primary ITO to accompany your application to NZQA.
We will assess your organisation's capacity and capability to deliver our unit standards by evaluating the documents and evidence that support your application.
1. Download and complete the Consent to Assess application form.
2. Gather your supporting documentation.
This should include:
► A copy of your Quality Management System document - your organisation will have a copy of this.
► A detailed response to our Consent and Moderation Requirements (CMRs). Refer to the application form for a list of our CMR’s.
► Anything else that will assist us in making our decision e.g., evidence of staff qualifications, letters of support from industry etc.
3. Email the completed form and documentation to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please allow 20 working days for approval
4. If a letter of support from Primary ITO is received, submit this along with your formal application to NZQA. This letter of support is valid for a period of 6 months from date of issue.
