National Certificate in Employment Skills
NZQF Level 1

About the course

The National Certificate in Employment Skills (NCES) recognises core skills and attributes necessary for successful employment and further learning. NCES is awarded to learners who have demonstrated competence in literacy and numeracy, and other personal and technical skills. These skills have been identified by employers as being important to ensure a learner is equipped to operate and be productive in the workplace.

Learners will continue to develop and grow as valued employees and demonstrate skills that contribute to lifelong learning.

This qualification is designed to be accessible so that learners are able to demonstrate competencies which will enable them to pathway onto skilled work and/or higher learning.

This qualification is intended to act as a springboard from which people may progress towards other higher level qualifications.

For the purposes of meeting the literacy and numeracy requirements, this qualification accepts credits from both unit standards and Level 1 recognised achievement standards. The literacy and numeracy requirements for this qualification can contribute to the literacy and numeracy requirements for NCEA Level 1.
