Meeting Invitation 7 April 2013

The Targeted Review of Qualifications (TRoQ) was introduced by the New Zealand Qualification Authority (NZQA) as a result of a review of the qualifications framework. Currently there are many similar qualifications: learners, employers and industry have said it can be difficult to distinguish between them.

The aim of this review is to ensure the clarity and relevance of qualifications. The TRoQ covers all qualifications at Levels 1–6 inclusive on the New Zealand Qualifications Framework and these have been clustered into discipline groups.

The review of the Beauty Services cluster of qualifications will be triggered on 7 April 2013. The New Zealand Hairdressing Industry Training Organisation (HITO) is managing the review of Beauty Services qualifications on behalf of NZQA. The NZQA Sector Relationship Manager allocated to this review is Kim Crosland and the Professional Advisor facilitating our meeting is Robyn Fitzgerald from Standards New Zealand.

The consultation meeting with stakeholders will be held at:

Date: Sunday 7 April 2013
Time: 9.30 am – 4.00 pm
Venue: Wellington Airport Conference Centre, Level 2, Main Terminal Building, Wellington

Please confirm your attendance with Sara Luey by 2nd April 2013 by email sara@hito.org.nz or phone (04) 499 1180.
