One of the provisions won in the settlement of the Secondary Teachers Collective Agreement was that the Ministry of Education would pay all practising certificate fees for teachers covered by the STCA between 1 November 2015 and 31 October 2018.

This has led to some confusion while the ministry and the Education Council sorted out how to do it. Here are some Q and A’s which we think should answer the most burning questions members may have.

(2015) This document contains updated guidelines developed as a result of the Memorandum agreed between New Zealand School Trustees Association Te Whakaroputanga Kaitiaki Kura o Aotearoa (NZSTA) and New Zealand Post Primary Teachers’ Association Te Wehengarua (NZPPTA) to assist boards of trustees (“boards”) to meet their good employer obligations to Māori.

Boards should note that the Government, as a Treaty partner, cannot devolve its Treaty responsibilities to boards, but has a role in monitoring boards as part of the fulfilment of its partnership obligations.
These guidelines aim to:
explain the good employer legislation so that boards are clear about their authority to act in respect of Māori;
assist in creating and maintaining a good and healthy working environment for Māori teachers.

(October 2015) 

Information for school guidance counsellors on changes in registration, certification and authorisation (LATs)
The information here is to update guidance counsellors on the impact of the Education Amendment Act 2015, which replaced the Teachers Council with the Education Council. The Amendment Act made significant changes to the registration framework, including a separation of registration from the holding of practising certificate and major changes to LATs. The Education Council’s Registration Policy is currently labelled ‘Interim’, so further changes can be expected in the coming months.
