Massage Programmes at Wellpark
Wellpark College is currently evaluating the ongoing delivery of massage programmes at the College. As some may know the old locally approved courses have been discontinued under the NZQA, being replaced by new, national framework programmes. The two qualifications that have been developed by the Targeted Review of Qualifications (TRoQ) group for NZQA are the Diploma of Wellness and Relaxation Massage (1 year, level 5) and the Diploma of Remedial Massage (1 year, level 6), with the level 5 qualification being a prerequisite to the level 6 qualification.
As of July 2018 the current provision of massage programmes Certificate of Massage and Diploma of Therapeutic Massage will no longer exist.
The College anticipates delivering the National Diploma of Wellness and Relaxation Massage in 2019, with the National Diploma in Remedial Massage following in 2020. This exercise is underway and we will keep you updated on the progress with accreditation to deliver these programmes.
