    Default Pre assessment result

    Hi all

    Please can anyone help? Time is ticking away and our fingers are poised and ready to hit send of our EOI, but were still waiting on a result from the NZQA for my husbands CIty & Guilds. Do we need this back before we can submit our EOI? Had an email back which makes no sense at all. :icon_confused: :icon_confused:

    Default Pre assessment result

    The email will be the assessment from the NZQA. If you cannot work out what is meant by the mail they have sent you post it here and I will explain it.

    Cheers,

    Chris.

    Default Pre assessment result

    Hi

    This is a copy of the email sent to us but there is no mention of the qualifcations, our receipt number or refereence number given to us

    We are totally confused


    Thank you for your email to the New Zealand Qualifications Authority
    (NZQA).

    The Qualifications Evaluation Service within NZQA is a government
    agency with responsibility for the assessment of qualifications held by
    people seeking immigration, employment, professional registration and
    opportunities for further study in New Zealand. The NZQA is unable to
    provide information about qualifications until a formal assessment is
    completed.

    Immigration points
    The New Zealand Immigration Service (NZIS) is responsible for all
    matters concerning immigration, the list of recognised qualifications
    and the awarding of immigration points. Please direct all questions
    regarding these matters to NZIS:
    Phone: +64(0)9 914 4100 (Auckland branch in New Zealand)
    or toll free within New Zealand 0508 558 855
    Website: www.immigration.govt.nz

    Is there any international study that NZQA does not evaluate?
    NZQA cannot evaluate the following:
    qualifications that are not accredited by the national accrediting
    body
    qualifications from awarding institutions that are not accredited by
    the national accrediting body
    informal or in-service courses
    work experience (unless the experience is a requirement of the New
    Zealand benchmark qualification to which your qualification is
    compared).

    Pre-assessment Result application (PAR)
    A Pre-assessment Result application is for immigration purposes only,
    for an 'Expression of Interest' in being invited to apply under the New
    Zealand Immigration Service's (NZIS) Skilled Migrant Category.

    There are two ways of applying for a Pre-assessment Result:
    online application
    application by post, courier or fax
    The Pre-assessment Result application fee is NZ$75.00. Fee payment will
    ONLY be accepted by credit card or bank draft. DO NOT SEND CASH. No
    documents are required for a Pre-assessment.
    NOTE: If you require an evaluation for any of the above purposes (refer
    first paragraph), IN COMBINATION WITH IMMIGRATION then please be aware
    that the Pre-assessment Result (PAR) will only be useful for immigration
    (for an 'Expression of Interest' under the NZIS's Skilled Migrant
    Category). A full Qualifications Assessment Report will be necessary
    for other purposes, and therefore it is suggested that you complete a
    full assessment, as this will meet ALL the purposes above, including
    immigration.

    What you need to know about the PAR process
    Only one qualification may be pre-assessed in this application. Please
    nominate the qualification that you would like to have pre-assessed. If
    you would like to have more than one qualification pre-assessed, you
    will need to make a separate application on a separate form, with
    separate payment, in each instance.

    How long will take to process a Pre-Assessment result?
    If all information requested in the application form is submitted
    correctly, a Pre-assessment Result will be issued to you within 10
    working days of confirmation of receipt of the application fee. There is
    no fast track option available for this service.
    A Pre-assessment Result is a provisional and non-binding qualifications
    assessment, and as such, provides no guarantee of any future assessment
    result.

    Will I be required to apply for a full assessment report?
    After you have lodged an 'Expression of Interest', if the New Zealand
    Immigration Service invites you to lodge a full application under the
    Skilled Migrant Policy, you will need to read and complete the New
    Zealand Guide and Application for Evaluation of Overseas
    Qualifications.

    (Remember, a full assessment can also be processed for professional
    registration, employment and opportunities for further study.)

    You will need to include an application fee of NZ$450 and the original
    documentation of your qualifications.

    Where can I get an application form for a full assessment report?
    An application form for the evaluation of your qualifications can be
    found on the NZQA website:
    http://www.nzqa.govt.nz/for-internat...lications.html.


    Select the form for 'Evaluation of international qualifications'.

    To download this PDF format document, you may need to first download
    the free Adobe Reader from www.adobe.com, which will enable you to print
    out the application form.

    What happens to my application for a full assessment?
    Upon receipt of an application form, payment of the NZ$450.00
    application fee, and all required documentation, a letter will be sent
    to you detailing the name of the Evaluator your application has been
    allocated to and their contact details. NZQA will process a 'standard'
    application within 20* working days. This means that:
    within ten working days of the receipt of the completed application
    form, all required supporting documents and fees, NZQA will commence the
    verification process
    within ten working days of the completion of the verification process
    (i.e. all information being received), NZQA will issue an Assessment
    Report.
    * For reasons outside of NZQA's control, third party verification may
    cause this time to be extended, as NZQA is unable to affect the time it
    will take to obtain a response to verification requests.

    Why does NZQA verify documents?
    NZQA will need to verify the status of an awarding institution and /or
    the information you provide to be sure that it is accurate, or it may
    need more information about a particular course or training. This
    involves contacting the institutions that awarded the qualifications, or
    employers or other organizations. When NZQA does this, it will issue
    you with a Verification Hold letter, because this will extend the time
    taken to evaluate your application.

    Verification fee
    Some institutions charge a fee for verifying documents. If this
    occurs, you will be notified and asked to make payment directly to the
    organisation concerned. Once NZQA has received the required
    verification, it can continue with the evaluation.

    Can my full assessment application be treated with urgency (fast
    tracked)?
    An optional fast track service is available for an additional fee of
    NZ$150.00. NZQA will process a 'fast track' application within 10*
    working days. This means that:
    within five working days of the receipt of the completed application
    form, all required supporting documents and fees, NZQA will commence the
    verification process
    within five working days of the completion of the verification process
    (i.e. all information being received), NZQA will issue an Assessment
    Report.
    * For reasons outside of NZQA's control, third party verification may
    cause this time to be extended, as NZQA is unable to affect the time it
    will take to obtain a response to verification requests.

    The New Zealand Qualifications Authority does not offer a fast track
    service for Pre-Assessment Result applications.

    How can I pay the application fee for a full assessment?
    Payment of the NZ$450.00 application fee can be made by:

    MasterCard or Visa - NZQA will need a letter or fax advising the
    cardholders name, number, expiry date and bearing the signature of the
    cardholder to be posted or faxed (+64 (0)4 8023401) to NZQA.

    You may also pay by bank draft in New Zealand currency drawn on a New
    Zealand trading bank; or by bank draft equivalent to the outstanding NZ
    dollar amount in US dollars drawn on a US bank, UK sterling drawn on a
    British bank or Euro drawn on a European bank.

    You may also pay by personal cheque (New Zealand only), or bank cheque
    in New Zealand dollars drawn on a New Zealand trading bank.

    Yours siether study.)

    Default Pre assessment result

    Hi Sammi,

    Did you apply for it online?

    If you did you should have received an email with a subject like this shortly after completing the form:-

    Confirmation of Pre-Assessment Application
    After about seven days you should receive another email with a body somthing like this:-

    The Pre-assessment Result for your nominated qualification, Name of qualification awarded by Examination Board, United Kingdom, following * years full time study, is as follows:

    Pre-assessment Result: Level *

    On the information available, the New Zealand Qualifications Authority
    (NZQA) assesses this qualification as comparable to the learning outcome of Level * on the New Zealand Register of Quality Assured Qualifications.

    This Pre-assessment Result is not binding on other agencies or organisations and has been prepared for immigration purposes only.
    What you have cut and pasted looks like a statement of the processes you can follow. I would suggest emailing them to find out what is going on.

    Cheers,

    Chris
