NZQA Qualification for Tutors
Second-year HIPPY tutors now have the opportunity to gain formal recognition of their work in HIPPY, by combining that work with a course of study for the National Certificate in Adult Education and Training through the Open Polytechnic of New Zealand. This Level 4 NZQA qualification comprises six units of study, including the design, delivery and facilitation of sessions for adult learning, as well as facilitating individualised learning.
Tutors’ NZQA study is well supported within the HIPPY framework. Their local coordinator and the HIPPY NZ Manager (Adult Education) provide guidance throughout their study as they gain an understanding of how to apply their learning, plan their study timetable, how to set out an essay and complete assignments.
This NZQA qualification has become a valuable stepping stone towards further education and work opportunities for those tutors undertaking the study.
