If you are involved in foundation focused tertiary education in New Zealand, we need you to give us your feedback on the new Adult Literacy and Numeracy Education (ALNE) unit standards.
These new unit standards replace US21204 and many other unit standards used for the NCALNE (Voc) and related qualifications.
From my side, I’m biased… Full disclosure: I’m in the working party redesigning these standards. I’m only interested in the standards for the new NZCALNE (Voc) qualification. This is eventually going to replace the existing NCALNE (Voc).
And I’m more interested in the standards for the new NZCALNE (Voc) qualification. This is eventually going to replace the existing NCALNE (Voc).
This is the biggest upgrade to the qualification since it changed from the original NCALE.
I think the new standards are pretty good. But NZQA wants your feedback now. So here are the questions you should be asking yourself:
- How do I give my feedback on the new standards?
- What do I like about the new standards?
- What improvements could we still make?
- What challenges, if any, will these create for people delivering the training?
Here’s what to do in four simple steps:
1. Read the new standards
- You can access all of the new standards online from this page.
- Or you can access the links to the four new standards that that will get used for the 40 credits required in the NZCALNE (Voc) here on my blog.
2. Download the response form
3. Provide your comments and feedback
- You have to do that yourself… If you think we can make them better please say so.
- If you think they are OK, then please let NZQA know that as well.
4. Email to NZQA
- You’ll need to email your comments on the completed form to ALNE.firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Do this before 2 May 2016.
