Proposed Education Council Rules Change

We have rules for how we manage our disciplinary bodies, practices and procedures. Until now we have been using the former Teachers Council rules, but because these expire on 30 June this year, we have to update the rules for the new organisation.

We’re seeking your views on the proposed new rules. These proposed rules will focus on helping us become more efficient, effective and timely. They must also ensure the rules of natural justice prevail for teachers under investigation or undergoing a police vet.



Welcome! The Forum is your space to read about, and have your say on, the Council's work and goals.
