Reviews of Level 3 horticulture unit standards are proceeding at a rapid pace and NGINZ and members of the Nursery Production Industry Partnership Group (IPG) reviewed and met with ITO Education Team staff to discuss reviewed and new nursery production programmes. There are some good outcome here and the qualifications framework will be much improved when complete. That said, it's been a long time in the making ... and a huge job. Horticulture as brought in to Government's TROQ (Targeted Review of Qualifications) process in 2013, and there's as year or two to run yet ... Our view? This will lead to a more robust and a more industry relevant set of nursery qualifications.
