New Literacy Standards

The Ministry of Education and NZQA are changing the literacy requirement for NCEA Level 1 from 8 credits to 10 credits and the numeracy requirement for NCEA Level 1 from 8 credits to 10 credits. The changed requirements will come into effect in 2011 in a transition arrangement, and be in full effect in 2012. The link below includes the list of Achievement Standards and the Unit Standards that will be eligble to count to the requirements. All Level One History Standards will count as Literacy Standards from 2011.
