Papers for discussion at the PPTA Annual conference 2015

PPTA’s 2015 Annual conference will be held 29 Sept – 1 Oct in Wellington.

These conference papers have been produced by the PPTA Executive to inform debate around a number of secondary education issues. 

icon The NCEA: Can it be saved?

This paper examines why teacher support for the National Certificate of Educational Achievement (NCEA) has struggled to rise beyond a "fragile consensus" since its 2002 inception and advocates major changes in government policies to enable the NCEA to fullful its potential.

icon Charter schools: an update

This paper examines the extent of the failure of the charter school experiment to provide an improved alternative to the public education system in New Zealand.

icon Initial teacher education in change: But is it for the better?

This paper examines the impact of new models of initial teacher education (ITE) that make greater demands on schools. It considers the effects on teacher workload and problems with new funding models, and seeks to find ways that partnerships between schools and teacher education providers can be better managed and teachers better recognised for their contribution.

icon EDUCANZ: the current state of play
