Teachers' Council Dumped
01 November 2013
Minister dumps Teachers Council

By Jo Moir

The Teachers Council has been dumped after the conviction of a child sex offender, who evaded police while working under a fake identity at several schools, prompted a review. Minister of Education Hekia Parata today announced a new body, the Education Council of Aotearoa New Zealand, is proposed to take over from the council and appointments have been made for a board to manage the transition.

The Teachers Council has been overseeing the profession since 2002 and a bill would be introduced to Parliament to make changes to the Education Act to see its disestablishment. This is expected to come into effect next year.

Ms Parata said the review process began three years ago and the decision to make changes was based on recommendations from the 2010 Workforce Advisory Group and findings of the ministerial report into the employment of a convicted sex offender in the education sector.

In May this year a ministerial advisory group, chaired by Dr Graham Stoop, led nation-wide consultation on proposed changes to the Teachers Council and regulation of teachers.

"Teaching needs a strong professional body that provides leadership to, and is owned by the profession,'' Ms Parata said.

"The new council will support system changes to improve the quality of teaching and education leadership and will have the needs of children and young people, and the public interest, at its heart.''

The transition board members appointed by Ms Parata are; Nancy Bell, Steve Maharey, Paul Matthews, John Morris, Hoana Pearson, Richard Newton, Professor Graham Hingangaroa Smith, Dr Margaret Southwick, Arihia Stirling, Linda Tame and Allan Vester.
