Choosing Unit Standards

Choosing Unit Standards

You can use this website to help find unit standards in your chosen career.

Our gateway material is organised into different career pathways. Each career pathway will give you a summary of what it’s like to do that job, the key skills that they will need, and also the areas you can specialise in (with the unit standards for those areas.)

You can choose to do individual unit standards or as combination packages where two or more related unit standards are grouped together under one assessment. This makes it easier to achieve more credits.

Ask your Gateway Coordinator to help you choose appropriate unit standards, remembering that 1 credit is approximately 10 hours work in total (this could be time spent reading the learning material, practicing the tasks at work, learning from your workmates and completing the practical assessment).
