Page 2 of 5 1 Objectives The audit aimed to obtain reasonable assurance that Newton College of Business and Technology (NCBT) is a sound and stable provider, has effective quality management systems in place, and is substantially achieving its goals and objectives as required by Quality Assurance Standard for Private Training Establishments, Government Training Establishments and W ā nanga (QA Standard One). The results of this audit will contribute to the decisions made by the New Zealand Qualifications Authority (NZQA) to confirm ongoing registration and accreditation, and the length of time until the next audit. An audit is a snapshot of the organisation’s performance at a particular time. As such, it is not a guarantee of ongoing compliance and effectiveness. An audit is based on sampling and instances of non-compliance may remain undetected. 2 Scope The audit covered all elements of QA Standard One except 1.2.8 Research. Research was excluded because NCBT does not offer degree courses. NCBT offers courses to international students. This audit included an evaluation of NCBT’s compliance with the Code of Practice for the Pastoral Care of International Students (Code of Practice). 3 Responsibilities NCBT is responsible for meeting all requirements of QA Standard One by ensuring the quality of its management systems and the achievement of its goals and objectives. Under the Education Act 1989, NZQA is responsible for registering private training establishments and granting accreditation to organisations offering approved courses. 4 Background This was a scheduled audit at the organisation’s sole site in Auckland. NCBT was previously audited in 2007 and did not meet six requirements of QA Standard One. The requirements not met related to the elements: goals and objectives; governance and management; personnel; learner information, entry and support; and notification and reporting on learner achievement. The previous audit included an evaluation of the Code of Practice. NCBT did not fully meet the requirements of the code. The requirements not met related to the provision of information to prospective international students, accepting international students for enrolment and annual review of information. NCBT has National Qualifications Framework (NQF) accreditation, mainly in computing, management and communications at levels 3-5. The organisation is accredited to offer the following courses: National Diploma in Business (Level 5)
