The NCALNE (Voc) we all know and love is about to change…


In the next couple of weeks the working group looking at the NCALNE (Voc) as part of the Targeted Review of Qualifications (TRoQ) is going to meet again. I’m planning on being there again to help shape the new NZCALNE (Voc).

I don’t know what the final shape of it is going to look like yet. However, I’m hoping it’s not going to be too much of a departure from the old one in terms of structure and content.

So just for the record, here’s how the existing one is put together. This is currently based on US21204 Version 4, US21196 Version 3, and US 9685 Version 6. The underpinning knowledge is unlikely to change at all. However, how we put this all together could change significantly.
