Related classifications and standards

New Zealand

The New Zealand Qualifications Framework (NZQF) was developed by the New Zealand Qualifications Authority and the Ministry of Education. Statistics New Zealand has adopted this level of attainment classification to be in line with the education sector.

When the qualification level output is required by subject, the subject classification, NZSCED, is linked to the level of attainment classification, NZREG.

The NZQF can also be used as a codefile for currently registered qualifications, for both level and subject.

Qualification subject

The New Zealand Standard Classification for Education – Field of Study NZSCED is the result of a combined development effort between the MoE, SNZ and the ABS. This classification is matched with the ABS's ASCED – Field in the top level categories, Broad Field and Narrow Field, and in all but a few of the lowest level categories.

Qualification level

NZREG is comparable for post–school qualifications with both ASCED – Level and ISCED – 2011.

Note: NZREG is not comparable for all ASCED school levels. ASCED – Level contains school and preschool levels that have no New Zealand equivalents. ASCED also provides a separate category for non-award and not identifiable responses. These responses are placed in 'no qualification' and 'not identifiable' in the NZREG classification.
