PAA\VQ-SET Diploma in Apparel Production (QCF)

NZ Academy of Fashion has Centre Approval from PAA\VQ-SET in the UK. We adhere to the strict policies of the Qualifications and Credit Framework. (QCF) is the national credit transfer system for education qualification in England, Northern Ireland and Wales.

Because of this affiliation the Academy does not operate within the NZQA framework. This means that students enrolled in any of our courses are NOT eligible for a student loan.

NZAF does have interest free instalment plans available.
