All submissions will be carefully considered and we will report on the feedback here. We will refine and finalise the Code and Standards to be ready for implementation on 1 July 2017.
As your professional body we are absolutely committed to making sure the Code reflects the voice and upholds the status of the teaching profession.
The Code and Standards will apply to all teachers who hold a practising certificate, regardless of where they practice, either in childhood education, primary, intermediate or secondary schools, Māori medium or tertiary settings. Those with a Limited Authority to Teach will be bound by the Code.
