The Teaching Council of Aotearoa New Zealand is calling for applications from teachers, leaders and teacher educators for Initial Teacher Education (ITE) Programme Approval and Review Panels. These panels are integral to the Council’s functions. This is an opportunity to contribute to the wider profession by supporting decision-making within the Council in ITE programme approval and review.
The purpose of the ITE Programme Approval and Review Panel is to assess applications for programme approval against the Teaching Council’s ITE Requirements. In particular, the panel makes a recommendation to the Teaching Council as to whether the programme and its accompanying assessment framework will ensure graduates meet the Standards for the Teaching Profession (in a supported environment). In making a recommendation, the panel may also make suggestions on how the programme could be further strengthened.
A key feature of this panel is that it will bring together members of our profession with diverse and complementary expertise to influence fit for purpose ITE programmes that will enable graduates to meet the Standards (in a supported environment).
The ITE Approval and Review Panel is looking for experienced teacher educators, teachers and leaders with particular expertise in one or more of the following areas:
Inclusive practices and universal design for learning
Cultural competence (especially with Māori and diverse Pacific cultures)
Educators fluent in Te reo me ngā tikanga Māori.
Successful applicants will also bring a strong understanding of the Code of Professional Responsibility and the Standards for the Teaching Profession, as well as integrity and excellent judgement.
Matatū currently has a particular need to recruit additional panellists with expertise in ECE, Pacific education and Māori medium education.
