Unit Standards in Schools

WILSS provides resources and support to schools so that they can create a classroom experience that meets the unique needs of students while seamlessly incorporating Unit Standards

Our commitment is to provide comprehensive, quality resources to teachers so they can support their learners to successfully complete Unit Standards and facilitate their achievement of credits towards National Certificate of Educational Achievement (NCEA).

Our suite of Unit Standard resources is generally focussed on their integration within the sports department of schools, with each Resource Pack containing a Teacher’s Guide, Marking Sheets, Student Assessments and Teacher Sample Answers.

Our key distinctive is if your School does not have consent to assess, the assessments are first marked by the teachers, then sent to WILSS who verify/moderate the results, a report is created and sent back to the School and the School then uploads the results through their Kamar system to NZQA.

The Unit Standards can be used as stand-alone or grouped into flexible but distinct pathways. It is strongly recommended that schools carefully consider and align their chosen pathway with the specific characteristics of their learners, school environment, and the broader community they serve.

Our current catalogue of Unit Standard resource packs include:
