The New Zealand Qualifications Authority is currently overseeing a mandatory review of all qualifications at levels 1-6 on the New Zealand Qualifications Framework (NZQF).
The Targeted Review of Qualifications aims to reduce the duplication and proliferation of qualifications; to ensure that qualifications meet the overall needs of a particular sector and are useful, relevant and fit for purposes; and meet the new requirements for listing qualifications on the NZQF.
Qualifications within the Mechanical Engineering sector are due to be reviewed during 2013. Competenz will be leading this review on behalf of NZQA and is now seeking to appoint a Governance Group to provide strategic direction, guidance and project oversight.
HERA is one of the nomination bodies for the Governance Group and are seeking an industry person who is a leader and strategic thinker, willing to put his/her view forward and consult with membership. At this stage in the review this is about the big picture governance and not the specific subject matter which will be consulted on later on in the review process.
Please contact the HERA Director with your CV if you feel you are able to contribute and would like to be considered in the nomination process.
