The candidate shall be awarded the diploma by the accredited institution at which they have been awarded the majority of the level 5 and level 6 credits. The certificate will display the logos of NZBED and the accredited TEO and be annotated as New Zealand Diploma in Engineering (Discipline). Each accredited provider will report annually to the NZBED the names of all graduates awarded the NZDE (Discipline). 3.

Completion The maximum completion time will be ten years (10) years from date of first enrolment. In exceptional circumstances this may be extended with approval from the Head of School/Centre Director.

4.

Assessment 4.1 All assessment is achievement based using an 11 point grading system. Module Grades Module grades are calculated by the mathematical aggregation of weighted assessments using the following conversion: Grade A+ A AB+ B BC+ C CD E

Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) 5.1 Recognition of Prior Learning includes credit transfer, cross credits, recognition of prior experiential learning, recognition of current competency, and assessment of prior learning. Each of these terms relates to previous qualifications and relevant experience. 5.2 Assessment of prior learning is available for modules in this qualification. This will be used for new enrolments and for candidates who wish to transition from related qualifications. Up to 50% of the qualification may be awarded through RPL. Credits gained from transfer from existing qualifications listed in the transition tables in Appendix 1 of the curriculum document and applied for before 31 December 2015 are excluded from the 50% limit. 5.3 All assessment of prior learning must comply with Wintec’s quality management system (WinQual Excellence Framework). 5.4 Wintec may apply to NZBED for approval to award RPL for more than 50% of the qualification, noting 5.2 as it applies to candidates transitioning from existing qualifications.

6.

Resits and Resubmissions 6.1 A resubmission is a request for learner to provide further evidence for assessment and applies to coursework assessments. 6.2 Resubmissions will be carried out in a time or time period agreed with the Team Manager and in alignment with Wintec’s Excellence Framework. 6.3 A candidate may undertake only one resubmission within any module. 6.4 Where a student faisla course and is required to re-enrol, the Head of School may authorise the course work mark to be carried through to the re-enrolment. The course work mark may only be carried through once. All course work marks carried through must be reported to the relevant Delivery Sub-committee annually.

Current Year One full time candidates enrolled on the existing diploma programme will complete the existing Year Two programme in 2011. New candidates will be enrolled in the new programme. Current part time candidates and those in exceptional circumstances will be assessed on a case by case basis (in line with the NZDE transition arrangements).
