It is important that PTEs develop effective self assessment processes, that are integrated and aligned with their existing business operations; and that not only meet NZQA requirements but are also of genuine ‘real value’ to the organisation and its stakeholders. Self assessment must be focused, purposeful and evidence driven.
Providers are encouraged to develop their own customised approach to self assessment, that is appropriate and meets the needs of their organisation. The Self Assessment process should be used by PTEs to highlight their special character, and to ensure that their distinctive contribution and associated strengths are recognised and valued – both within the PTE itself and by all stakeholders (including NZQA).
We have developed the Croydon Self Assessment Model to assist PTEs develop their own customised Self Assessment system, procedures and practice.
