We ensure quality teaching and high standards by registering teachers, setting and maintaining professional standards and ensuring teachers are competent and fit to practice.
See the latest on what we have been doing to speak up and out for teachers on important issues and use their expert opinion to positively influence the education system.
The Teaching Council is governed by a Council made up of 13 Councillors: seven Councillors are elected by teachers and six are appointed by government.
Find the Council's published documents including annual reports, strategic plans and briefings to the incoming Minister of Education.
We are always interested to welcome motivated and skilled individuals keen to make a difference for more than 100,000 teachers in Aotearoa New Zealand.
Our governing board is supported by an organisation of about 100 employees led by a chief executive and leadership team.
The Teaching Council is proactively releasing information to assist the profession and public to understand decisions and the decision-making process.
