Micro-credential in intermediate health quality improvement available through Improving together: Facilitators programme

Building Leadership & Capability
06 March 2024

Te Tāhū Hauora Health Quality & Safety Commission is excited to be able to offer the micro-credential Intermediate health quality improvement (Micro-credential) (Level 4). 

This micro-credential is offered by Te Tāhū Hauora through the Improving together: Facilitators programme, which develops and expands the quality improvement skills and knowledge participants require to become effective facilitators of change. This includes gaining an understanding of the elements of the broader complexity of the system of health and disability care delivery, and strategies to lead quality improvement activities within this complexity. 

The New Zealand Qualifications Authority (NZQA) has evaluated the Intermediate health quality improvement (Micro-credential) (Level 4) and assessed it to be equivalent to 20 credits (20 x 10 notional learning hours) at Level 4 on the New Zealand Qualifications and Credentials Framework. 

The Facilitators programme is designed for those working in the health and disability sector who are interested in learning how to improve health care delivery at a practical level and who can lead a small improvement project in their workplace. 

Dr Peter Jansen, Tumuaki Chief Executive of Te Tāhū Hauora, says the assessment of the course by NZQA is an exciting development for the organisation’s efforts in offering education on quality improvement for the health and disability sector.   
‘We are delighted that Improving together: Facilitators has been assessed by NZQA. Our quality improvement courses are a core part of our work and allow people working in the sector to collaborate and share improvement strategies around the motu.’
