Teacher Registration and Certification Policy Review (23 April 2018)
We strongly support in principle the Education Council’s move to align the Teacher Registration and Certification Policy with the Code of Professional Responsibility and the Standards for the Teaching Profession, and to strengthen the teaching profession’s commitment to tangata whenuatanga and bicultural partnership and practice. There are a few specific aspects of the changes proposed that we provide comment on for the Council’s consideration.

Education (Protecting Teacher Title) Amendment Bill (12 April 2018)
We strongly support moves to restore the mana of the teaching profession and lift the professional image of teachers. However, we are concerned that this Bill’s focus on the term ‘teacher’ is out of step with aspects of being a teacher in New Zealand, not least of all bicultural principles and practices.
This Bill was withdrawn from parliamentary processes on 11 May 2018.
