Acknowledgment of great te reo Māori champion and educator Toni Waho
Taka mai ā mahara, takatū ā whatu ngākau,
Kua waipuketia ki te wai karekare o aumoana whakaaro mō te Poutoki Tangata o te Ao Kaiako me te reo Māori anō hoki. Kua mutu ōna rangi ki te ora. E Toni haere rā, haere rā!
The Teaching Council wishes to acknowledge and express sadness for the passing of Toni Waho. Toni was a lifelong advocate of te reo Māori and an extraordinary teacher. He was also a member of the Teachers' Council in 2006 and his contributions to our work are still felt today.
Thank you to teachers and leaders
Teaching Council fees announcement
After careful analysis of the feedback we received from the fee consultation, the Teaching Council Governing Board has decided to increase fees to $157 per annum. However, it is deferring the change to February 2021 when it will also begin moving to annual teacher certification.
We are mindful of the need to reduce workload for teachers and professional leaders applying annually for certification. Work is already underway to streamline appraisal and endorsement processes and the launch of Hapori Matatū | Online Community, the new online system will simplify and expedite the process for applying for certification. Police vetting will continue to be undertaken every three years. We will work with the sector on a fit for purpose approach to reduce workload. Please click here to read more.
A Royal Commission of inquiry is looking into what happened to children, young people and vulnerable adults in State and faith-based care in Aoteoroa New Zealand between the years 1950-99. Although they are not limited to that timeframe. As part of this inquiry, allegations may be made against teachers.
Hear the stories of two provisionally certificated early childhood teachers ready to leave the profession and why they chose to stay (spoiler alert: caring, supportive and effective mentoring).
The teaching profession is in a unique position as leaders and changemakers of society; we know you are committed to ensuring our tamariki and rangatahi are supported to feel, think, feel and behave in inclusive ways.
