Important update: Real Estate training moving to Ignite

As you will be aware the Reform of Vocational Education (ROVE) is well underway. This means that Skills is transitioning arranging training activity to a variety of organisations called ‘Receiving Organisations’. Arranging Training means the provision of on-job and off-job training and support. We can now confirm that as of 1 September 2022, the arranging training activities related to Real Estate will move to Ignite.

What does this mean for you?

From 1 September 2022, the arranging, supporting and assessing work-based learning (apprenticeships, traineeships and micro-credentials) in respect of the programme you are registered to assess will transfer from Skills to Ignite.

Changes we are making behind the scenes

From 26 - 31 August 2022, we are implementing ‘read only’ to our systems. This means that no changes can be made to these systems during that period. Learners won’t be able to access learning materials or assessments. You can still send through any completed assessments / credits to credits@skills.org.nz up until 30 September 2022. Ignite will be in touch with you before then to provide you their contact details.

What happens to my information that Skills holds

Your status as a Registered Assessor and assessing scope will automatically be transferred as part of the arrangement agreed between Ignite and Skills. To ensure a smooth transition for everyone involved, the information Skills holds about you will be transferred to Ignite.

Next steps & support
