Important changes to the Business Level 5 Diploma Programme from 25 July
Kia ora

We’ve made some changes to the New Zealand Diploma in Business (Level 5) Leadership and Management programme. These changes are the result of feedback from workplaces, assessors and learners. Additional learning resources are also being incorporated.

Changes to modules
From 25 July, the Level 5 programme will have five modules, with each module leading to a unit standard.  This replaces the current programme which has four modules leading to the same number of unit standards as the current programme.

The modules are now all named by their topic and the unit standard number that is achieved.

The current large module 03: Innovation and change has been divided into two smaller modules, called Manage business activities and Innovation and change. See below:
What this means for Business Level 5 learners
Your staff who are already enrolled in the NZ Diploma in Business will continue their studies, and transition arrangements will ensure their work so far is recognised. Learners who have started 03: Innovation and change, will need to complete that module. For those who haven’t yet started it, they will instead complete both: 29045: Manage business activities and 29049: Innovation and change. All learners gain the added benefit of having access to additional new learning resources.
Other programme enhancements
A new ‘Getting started’ page on Aka Toi in the Business Resource library introduces our business assessors and there is a helpful new guide to support learners to get started.

For the additional learning resources, we have partnered with eCampus to adapt their learning resources for our Level 5 Business learners. As a result, there are new videos and activities which help to bring the content to life. Learning resources have also been mapped to the module topics for greater relevance.

Careerforce assessors will continue to guide, support and mentor people on their journey, now using revised and improved assessments.

New enrolments
From 25 July all new learners enrolling in the Diploma programme will complete the new 5 module programme. Learners need to be current leaders and managers with direct reports.  More information about the programme is available here.

Careerforce is offering free enrolment in this programme until 31 December 2022. For any enrolments that are eligible for Fees Free or for any applicable grants, these entitlements will take precedence over the Careerforce free enrolment offer.

Advising learners about the changes
We will also be sending emails to learners who are currently enrolled in the programme. See email. Careerforce Assessors will also be contacting them about these changes shortly.

If you need more information, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
