Te Pūkenga network partners (institutes of technology and polytechnics) have worked collaboratively to develop a unified programme of study (not including programmes of industry training at this time) for the following qualification: 

  • 2115 New Zealand Certificate in Commercial Barbering (Level 4)

We want to ensure the unified programme of study will work for all our current and future partners and communities. Therefore, we invite feedback to ensure the unified programme of study delivers to the diverse ākonga, workforce and community needs. 

The unified programme of study will be delivered by all our Te Pūkenga institutes of technology or polytechnics that currently offer a Barbering qualification from 2023, subject to approval and accreditation.   

As a key partner or stakeholder, we invite your feedback on the proposed programmes during the consultation phase that runs from Thursday, 18 August – Wednesday 14 September 2022.
