Teaching Council Board Elections
Kia hiwa rā, kia hiwa rā.
Kia hiwa rā ki tērā tuku.
Kia hiwa rā ki tēnei tuku.
Kia tu, kia oho, kia mataara.
Tihei mauri ora.
Nau mai, haramai ki tēnei whārangi.
In September 2018 legislation was passed, changing the name of the Education Council to the Teaching Council of Aotearoa New Zealand, and allowing for seven members of the council’s new Board to be elected by different sectors within the profession.
A further six Board members will be appointed by the Minister.
The elections will be held in March 2019.
The election rules have now been published, following consultation with the sector. You can read a summary of the consultation results here.
We will update this page regularly with information about the elections. Anticipated key dates are:
|Nominations open||23 November 2018|
|Nominations close||25 January 2018|
|Voting opens||4 March 2019|
|Voting closes||26 March 2019|
- Please make sure we have your current email address so you can vote electronically. You can update your details here.
Think about whether you’d like to stand as a candidate or would like to nominate someone. We’ll update this site with details on the nomination process later in November.
Make sure you’re eligible to vote and/or stand as a candidate. Under s 380 of the Education Act eligibility varies slightly depending on which sector you’re working in – see table below. Note that if you need to have a practising certificate it must be current through February and March 2019.
