ITE Programme Approval and Review Panel

ITE Panel Member Position Description

ITE Panel Member Application Form

The purpose of the Initial Teacher Education (ITE) Programme Approval and Review Panel is to assess applications for programme approval against the Teaching Council’s ITE Requirements. In particular, the panel assesses whether the programme, and its accompanying assessment framework, will ensure graduates meet the Standards for the Teaching Profession (in a supported environment).

Panel recommendations will be made on whether or not the application should be approved, conditions (if any) that should be imposed, and the date by which the programme (if approved) should be reviewed. In making a recommendation, the panel may also make suggestions on how the programme could be further strengthened. The Panel will also review approved programmes.

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). Panel members will be expected to be available for a few days every couple of months, or as necessary.

The ITE Approval and Review Panel is looking for:

  • experienced teacher educators, teachers and leaders
  • assessment expertise
  • curricula expertise
  • inclusive practices and universal design for learning expertise
  • integrity and excellent judgement
  • cultural competence (especially with Māori and Pasifika cultures)
  • strong understanding of the Code of Professional Responsibility and the Standards for the Teaching Profession.
