Abstract or Summary

TEC expects ITPs to achieve high student success rates (2007) and to demonstrate appropriate contributions in their plans and reports. This requires accurate and truthful statistical analysis and suitable management practices to achieve the required contribution levels. The value of good programme management will be indispensable. With the National Advisory Committee on Computing Qualifications (NACCQ) being the only recognised advisory organisation to ITPNZ, it has a responsibility to visibly share and help improve the ITP sector management of ICT qualifications. McCarthy (2007) raised this matter, covering work of Scott (2005) and others, but no subsequent papers have been presented at following NACCQ annual conferences. This paper presents a case study from one institution to provide further work on this very important matter.
