How does the New Zealand Qualifications System Work?

The qualifications system in New Zealand is based on the New Zealand Qualifications Framework which is managed by the New Zealand Qualifications Authority.

All qualifications on the framework are allocated a level from 1 to 10, with 10 being the highest.
