Advocate for newer teachers via the Establishing Teachers' Committee
Establishing teachers are those in their first 10 years of teaching in New Zealand. That includes teachers who trained in New Zealand and are in the first ten years of their careers, and those who trained overseas and are in their first ten years of teaching in New Zealand.
The committee is dedicated to advocating for these teachers on issues that disproportionately affect those at the beginning of their careers, and those who are new to the country.
There are 10 members on the committee. This includes two members of staff (an advisory officer and a field officer), a member of the PPTA executive, a member of Te Huarahi, and six members who apply for the role and are selected by the PPTA president and general secretary.
Members are selected for a two-year term. We currently have three vacancies. If you would like to join this committee then please fill in this form.
