Carey has just been awarded a Category 1 in our recent NZQA (New Zealand Qualification Authority) External Evaluation Review. NZQA uses an external evaluation and review process (EER) to review the current quality of performance within non-university tertiary education organisations (TEO). Category 1 is the highest ranking possible and places the college in the top 15% of TEOs in New Zealand for its educational performance and capability in self-assessment.

The report noted, “Many of the students interviewed attested to the core experience of participating in an authentic community while at the college. Carey Baptist has engaged qualified, experienced, research-active lecturers who enable learning and pastorally support their students.” 

“We are delighted with this result as it recognises the commitment of the wider team at Carey to our students, to our stakeholders and to the overall quality of our educational offerings” says Rob Ayres, Academic Director.
