Health and holistic wellness qualifications approved

Toitū te Waiora is pleased to announce that after undergoing a thorough review, which involved valuable input from industry associations, professionals, and Tertiary Education Organisations the New Zealand Qualifications Authority (NZQA) has approved the following qualifications:

  • New Zealand Diploma in Health Science (Level 5) [Ref: 3510-3]
  • New Zealand Diploma in Holistic Nutrition (Level 6) [Ref: 3511-3]

And introduced a new qualification:

  • New Zealand Diploma in Holistic Health Advocacy (Level 5) [Ref: 4915-1]

The comprehensive 12-month review process included national consultation and an advisory group with representation from six organisations. This collaborative effort ensured alignment with a preventative health approach, ensuring the qualifications remain at the forefront of industry needs.

Toitū te Waiora want to extend its appreciation to all the organisations and individuals who contributed to the process. We look forward to seeing the positive impact these updated qualifications will have on the future of addressing nutritional and lifestyle health, and holistic wellness advocacy.
