Disciplinary Tribunal Members
The New Zealand Teachers Disciplinary Tribunal (Tribunal) is a quasi-judicial body that considers matters referred to it by the Complaints Assessment Committee (CAC) of the Teaching Council.
Tribunal hearings are formal procedures and conducted in a manner very similar to a court. The Tribunal operates as a panel, generally of three people. The Chairperson is a lawyer, with the balance of the panel being experienced teachers.
Evidence may be received from witnesses, either verbally or in writing, or may be provided in the form of any relevant documents, records, objects or by other means. Often hearings are on the papers (without any parties appearing) and can be held in locations around New Zealand or using Skype. You can find out more about the Tribunal here.
The Disciplinary Tribunal is looking for experienced teachers with excellent judgement. Preference will be given to those who meet some or all of the following criteria:
- teachers who speak te reo Māori
- teachers who are representative of our multicultural profession and society
- professional leaders, particularly those from Early Childhood Education
- based in Wellington or the South Island
