This year the suite of qualifications that in 2015 replaced all Computing/ICT quals at levels 1-6 on the NZ Qualifications Framework are undergoing a scheduled review.

As well as a good refresh across the suite, a number of substantial structural changes are being considered.

Paul Matthews (ITP CEO), Aaron Steele (CITRENZ Chair) and Mary-Claire Proctor (CITRENZ Deputy Chair) are members of the Steering Group overseeing the review and will provide an update on progress, plus the opportunity to ask any questions about the process or qualifications.
