Proposed extension of Last Date of Assessment for Youth Work and Development qualifications July 28th, 2023 Toitū te Waiora has received a request to extend the last date of assessment for the qualifications listed below from 31 December 2025 to 31 December 2026. New Zealand Certificate in Youth Leadership (Level 3) Version 2 [Ref: 2448] New Zealand Certificate in Youth Work (Level 4) Version 2 [Ref: 2449] New Zealand Diploma in Youth Work (Level 6) Version 1 [Ref: 3803]. It is intended that the one-year extension will allow time for education providers to adjust their programmes of study to align to the new versions of the qualifications which were approved in February 2023. This extension will also allow time to include the new suite of skill standards in programmes, which are currently under development.
