Contract finishes for Chief Executive Graham Stoop
Teaching Council of Aotearoa New Zealand Chief Executive Graham Stoop’s three-year contract has come to an end. His last day at the Council will be 24 December.
Graham took the reins at the Council in November 2015.
Council Board Chairperson Barbara Ala’alatoa says Graham's leadership has seen the Council become a high-performing professional and contemporary organisation with an emphasis on working with the profession and collaborating with the wider education sector.
“This is a huge accomplishment. We are proud of what Graham and the Council team have achieved. We wish Graham all the best for his future endeavours.”
Under Graham's management the Council has gone from being a largely paper based organisation to providing online services for renewal of teachers’ full practising certificates, as well as embracing social media to keep the profession up to date with the latest Council and education sector news.
Council has co-constructed with teachers Our Code Our Standards: Code of Professional Responsibility and Standards for the Teaching Profession, and a Leadership Strategy for the profession. The Council is also working with the sector on reshaping initial teacher education.
The Council’s Deputy Chief Executive, Lesley Hoskin, will be interim Chief Executive until a new Council Board takes office in July 2019.
Barbara will continue to play a key role alongside Lesley in working with the Council’s partners.
