Education Amendment Bill

Proposed amendment

Nicola Willis, in Committee, to move the following amendment:

Clause 14

In clause 14(2), new section 222AD(4), replace paragraph (a) (page 6, lines 4 to 15) with:

(a)

at least 1 member is—

(i)

a permanent member of the teaching or general staff of the institution; and

(ii)

a person that the permanent members of the teaching and general staff of the institution have elected to represent them; and

Explanatory note

This Supplementary Order Paper amends the Education Amendment Bill. It amends clause 14 to replace new paragraph (a) in section 222AD(4). The current proposed paragraph (a) necessitates that the permanent members of the teaching or general staff that sit on the council are elected by permanent members of the teaching general staff. This places unnecessary limitations on the appointment process for councils and fails to consider contextual factors that may be at play within the council or institution.
