Mandatory Review of Health and Disabilities, Social Services and Whānau Ora Qualifications

Listed qualifications


Māori Qualifications Services (MQS) is pleased to confirm that in December 2015 the 11 mātauranga Māori qualifications were listed on the New Zealand Qualifications Framework (NZQF) with an overall rating of He Pounamu Whakairo (PDF, 660KB).

The following qualifications can now be accessed through the NZQA website links below or by searching for the qualification reference number or title.

What next?

Now that these qualifications are listed, providers will need to obtain programme approval or provider accreditation to deliver an approved programme before they can offer the new qualifications.

Review of Hauora unit standards

MQS has begun the review and development of relevant unit standards to support the new qualifications. Updates on the review of unit standards leading to these qualifications can be found by visiting the Hauora reviews and developments page.


Refer to 2013-2015 developments for more information on the review.
