BCITO and Education Providers

We work in partnership with employers and industry to set skills standards and qualifications our industries need. We develop skills standards and qualification specifications for more than 15 trades.

We are also responsible for maintaining our standards and ensuring the quality of training and assessment education providers deliver in the building and construction industry.  


Built for students, teachers, and job seekers, myBCITO is a digital toolkit that will help anyone start an apprenticeship, access online tools to get work-ready, build their portfolio and track achievements all in one place.

Teachers who have previously registered can access myBCITO here.

Tertiary providers

If your institution is planning on developing a programme linked to a BCITO developed New Zealand Certificate or Diploma, you'll need to consult with us.  We check that the programme you design fits within the qualification guidelines and specifications.

You may also need consent to assess for unit standards and you might have to adhere to our moderation processes.

Consent to assess

Consent to assess is awarded to a registered training provider or school when it has shown it is capable of delivering an approved course or assessing against BCITO unit standards.

BCITO evaluates your organisation's ability to uphold the quality of training and assessment so we can maintain a skilled and expert workforce.

Consent requirements


BCITO is responsible for setting construction skills standards and managing a moderation system for schools and providers who are assessing our standards. Moderation ensures assessment against our unit standards are fair and consistent.
