Quality and Continuous Improvement

EmployNZ has a continuous improvement approach based on ongoing self-assessment where performance is reviewed, outcomes analysed, changes implemented and actions reviewed to ensure processes and systems remain effective and relevant, this includes regular questionnaires for staff, students, clients, employers and parents.

The expectations of a ‘quality’ programme is achieved by focusing on three key focus areas; learner engagement and achievement, the learning environment, and engaging with stakeholders and the broader community. EmployNZ reviews how well each programme is meeting those expectations at least once every 12 months.

In the 2019 NZQA External Evaluation Report (EER) EmployNZ was judged to be; Highly Confident in educational performance and Highly Confident in self assessment capability.
