What is EER?
NZQA uses external evaluation and review (EER) as its standard means of reviewing the educational performance and capability in self-assessment of tertiary education organisations. It forms part of the accountability process required by Government to inform investors, the public, students, prospective students, communities, employers and other interested parties.

NZQA has recently reviewed the College of Natural Health & Homeopathy (CNHH). The Report says:

  • “There is evidence that CNHH is meeting the most important needs of learners and other key stakeholders.”
  • CNHH matches the needs of its learners through face-to-face, distance or blended learning according to need.
  • “The clinical training and live or video-recorded case studies used for learning and/or assessments are a real strength.”
  • “The employer stakeholders spoken to by NZQA were very positive and specific about the knowledge and skills of CNHH graduates.”
  • “CNHH’s tutors are highly qualified and experienced and still current homeopathic practitioners.” This means that all programmes, activities and resources are regularly updated to ensure their relevance and currency.
  • CNHH has a system of regular contact with all distance students and students say they feel valued, connected, part of the College and know what to expect so feel less overwhelmed.
  • “Staff take a proactive and responsive approach to providing all students with ongoing quality guidance and support based on meeting the needs of the whole person and providing the flexibility relevant to each learner’s personal and family circumstances.”

CNHH is committed to providing the best education for our students now and in the future. We have recently implemented the following:

  • Enhanced student and employer feedback mechanisms
  • Enhanced teaching and learning practices
  • New initiatives and staff to attract and retain Maori students
  • Additional support for Maori and Pasifika students with resources, scholarships and individual face-to-face tutoring

  • A new mentoring programme for graduates
  • Opportunities for students to work with key stakeholders to provide homeopathic treatment for the public
