Open for Consultation 20 May 2015 – 30 Jun 2015
NZQA invites learners’ feedback on the proposal to develop a ‘Universal’ Record of Achievement.
New Zealanders are increasingly mobile. As they move to a new job or onto further learning, they want their skills and qualifications to be quickly and easily recognised. Their learning needs to be portable and transferable.
Currently NZQA maintains the Record of Achievement. This is the official transcript of all the national qualifications and standards that a person has achieved.
There has been a change in learners’ requests for copies of their Records of Achievement: request for paper copies has levelled off, and more learners are asking for electronic transcripts for use in e-CVs and other online applications.
NZQA would like to know if learners want the Record of Achievement as it is or if a more comprehensive record that displays all the qualifications and other learning they have achieved would be more useful.
What do you think about the idea of a ‘Universal’ Record of Achievement? What would you expect to see recorded on it?
