We would like to invite you to participate in our consultation on proposed changes to Part Two of the ITE Programme Approval, Monitoring and Review Requirements – specifically monitoring, review, and moderation of Initial Teacher Education (ITE) programmes.

The proposed approach would use: 

  • Information already provided from ITE provider internal and external reporting processes. 
  • Feedback from partners (sought directly or through ITE provider reporting).  
  • Additional information requested by the Council that could be included in current reporting templates which is focused on expectations from the ITE Requirements. 

By doing this, the proposed approach seeks to avoid unnecessary duplication of effort and information that would place a cost and resource burden on ITE providers.

The proposed approach, which you'll see in the consultation document aims to contribute to the ongoing work of building a high-quality ITE sector that produces confident and capable beginning kaiako | teachers. It also seeks to prioritise and make sense of information that helps build our shared understanding of the impacts that changes to the requirements have had, so that a clear picture of the effectiveness of the ITE system is built up over time.

As well as this, it seeks to continue the collaborative, educative approach towards the Council’s quality assurance responsibilities for ITE programmes that was in place during the interim monitoring phase.  Additionally, the approach is intended to offer appropriate levels of individualised support to programmes throughout delivery as needed. 

Note that this consultation is focused on the ITE Requirements; in 2024 the Council will work with the sector to develop an approach to monitoring, review, and moderation for programmes approved under Te Whare o Rongotauira.

We really appreciate your time and support in participating in this consultation.
