The Certificate in Leisure and Sport


The Certificate in Leisure and Sport programme is offered in conjunction with Tairawhiti Polytechnic.

Regulations for the Certificate in Leisure and Sport (CertLSp)
1.   Every candidate for the Certificate in Leisure and Sport shall be enrolled in a programme of study approved by the Certificate in Leisure and Sport Board of Studies.
2.   Candidates for the certificate shall meet such requirements for admission to papers as may be specified in the relevant prescriptions as defined in the Calendar of the institution which is offering the papers.
3.   The programme of study shall comprise three equal and coherent parts
  (a)   one part shall consist of at least 30 points in undergraduate papers, which will normally be at Level 1, of the University of Waikato
  (b)   a second part shall consist of a programme of study offered by Tairawhiti Polytechnic and that programme will normally require attendance and assessed work totalling approximately 300 hours
  (c)   a third part may be completed in one of the following ways:
  (i)   additional study may be undertaken of two papers of the University of Waikato, or of approximately 300 hours of study in programmes of Tairawhiti Polytechnic, or by a combination of one university paper and approximately 150 hours of study in programmes of one Tairawhiti Polytechnic
  (ii)   appropriate work of a practical nature which is related to the theme of the chosen area of study and which is approximately equivalent in amount and difficulty to 300 hours of study by attendance and assessment at a tertiary education institution
  (iii)   by
  (a)   credit of appropriate practical or coursework which has already been completed and certified by a recognised training or education institution or organisation, such credit to count for one-sixth of the Certificate of Leisure and Sport requirements, and by
  (b)   undertaking an approved project relevant to the papers taken and the personal area of interest of the candidate, the result of the project to be presented in an appropriate form and to count for one-sixth of the Certificate of Leisure and Sport requirements.
4.   In assessing whether credit may be granted towards the Certificate in Leisure and Sport for work completed in non-participating institutions, the following principles will apply:
  (a)   the work to be credited shall be appropriate in subject matter and standard
  (b)   the work has required a similar period of study to that which would be needed for a similar body of work carried out in the participating institutions (for this purpose it will be generally assumed that 150 hours of study equates to two years of appropriate practical experience)
  (c)   once credit towards the Certificate in Leisure and Sport has been granted for work which has already been recognised as a part of the requirement for any earlier qualification, it cannot be further credited to another higher qualification (e.g. a degree) unless the Certificate of Leisure and Sport is surrendered.
5.   A candidate who has successfully completed the Certificate in Leisure and Sport may apply on the appropriate form to the Director of the Student and Academic Services Division of the University of Waikato, or to the Principal of Tairawhiti Polytechnic, to credit certificate papers towards a higher qualification of that institution.
  The application must be accompanied by the prescribed fee. The credited papers shall comply with the regulations for the higher qualification. A maximum of one-third of the work completed for the Certificate in Leisure and Sport may be credited in this way. A candidate who wishes to credit more than one-third of the work completed for the Certificate in Leisure and Sport will be required to surrender that certificate before the award of credit will be confirmed.
6.   The credit which may be awarded for transfer to a higher qualification shall be decided by the appropriate authority of the institution to which application is made.
Notes:
1.   Any panel set up to devise and supervise particular programmes of study will include representatives of Tairawhiti Polytechnic and the University of Waikato.
2.   The Certificate of Leisure and Sport is awarded in the name of the combined participating institutions.
