Education Amendment Bill (No 2)

Proposed amendment

Catherine Delahunty, in Committee, to move the following amendment:

Clause 38: new section 383

In clause 38, new section 383, delete paragraph (f) (page 54, line 30).

Explanatory note

This Supplementary Order Paper amends clause 38, new section 383 to delete the proposed power of the Education Council of Aotearoa New Zealand to fix fees for the provision of professional leadership.

Deletion of this power is consistent with the amendment proposed elsewhere to remove new section 382(1)(a), which requires the new council to “provide leadership to teachers and direction for the education profession”. The council already has the power under section 383 to charge for any goods or services it provides in accordance with its functions. Activities such as the professional development workshops on competence and appraisal provided by the current Teachers Council could be charged for under that provision, because they are relevant to the effective operation of the registration function.
