Purpose

The National Certificate in Health, Disability, and Aged Support (Foundation Skills) (Level 2) is designed as an entry-level qualification to recognise the knowledge and skills required of support workers in the health, disability, and aged support sector.


People awarded this qualification are able to demonstrate knowledge related to: applying service plan requirements to meet the needs of consumers; maintaining a safe and secure environment; the role of a support worker; and a consumer’s rights; in a health or disability setting.
In addition to the compulsory standards this qualification contains an elective set that offers a range of Level 2 standards and one Level 3 standard in three specified domains, which can be selected to match the particular requirements of support workers’ roles and responsibilities, and those of their workplaces; together with five named standards relating to continence, communication disability, occupational health and safety practice, and interpersonal communications that have been identified as relevant to support workers within the health, disability, and aged support sector.
This qualification leads to the National Certificate in Health, Disability, and Aged Support (Core Competencies) (Level 3) [Ref: 1327], and to other National certificates that have been developed for the health, disability, and aged support sectors at Levels 3 and 4.

Replacement Information

This qualification replaced the National Certificate in Community Support Services (Foundation Skills) [Ref: 1135].

Transition Arrangements



Version 3
Version 3 was issued in response to strong calls from the sector to remove some of the standards from the compulsory section and reposition them as electives, as these standards comprised competencies no longer considered to be required elements in all workplaces within a health, disability, and aged support context. The sector also called for the reviewed qualification to include an element of choice of standards in order to meet the requirements of particular workplace environments, as well as the specific requirements of the Aged Related Residential Care agreement and the Health and Disability Standards. The review of version 2 followed the reclassification of a new subfield and domains, and the change in qualification title is a consequence of this reclassification. Version 3 provides for a knowledge and skill set comparable to that of version 2.
Changes to structure and content

  • The qualification has been reclassified in the Health, Disability, and Aged Support subfield.

  • The title of the qualification has changed to reflect the new classification.

  • An elective section has been added to allow the qualification to be tailored to specific sub-sectors; and to enable standards relating to occupational health and safety practice and interpersonal communications to be incorporated into the qualification.

  • Standards 20826, 20829, 23452, 23453, and 23685 have been removed from the compulsory section but are available in the Elective.

  • Standards 20826, 20829, 20830, 23451, 23452, 23453, 23454, 23685, and 23686 comprising version 2 – and which are also available in version 3 – have all been revised.

For detailed information see Review Summaries on the NZQA website.


This qualification contains classifications that replaced other classifications. For the purposes of this qualification, people who have gained credit for standards in the expiring classification may use those credits to meet the qualification requirements.

People currently working towards version 2 can either complete that version or transfer their results to version 3. The last date for entry to training programmes or courses for version 2 is December 2011.



Previous versions of the qualification

Version 2 was issued to add the level to the title; and it is now the National Certificate in Community Support Services (Foundation Skills) (Level 2) [Ref: 1291].

There are no changes to the requirements for the qualification and version 1 has been withdrawn. Therefore existing candidates can be awarded the certificate with the level in the title from now on.

Version 1 replaced the National Certificate in Community Support Services (Foundation Skills) [Ref: 1135].



It is anticipated that no existing trainees will be disadvantaged by these transition arrangements. Any person who feels that he or she has been disadvantaged by these transition arrangements, however, should contact the Community Support Services Industry Training Organisation Limited at the address below.
