Graduating Teacher Standards

From 1 July 2019, the Graduating Teacher Standards will be replaced by the Standards for the Teaching Profession (the Standards). Find out more here.

The Graduating Teacher Standards help to protect the quality of teaching in New Zealand.

The Teaching Council has these standards to provide more certainty in the quality of all graduates from all teacher education programmes. The teaching profession has the right and responsibility to determine who will enter and remain in the profession.

These standards have been developed in co-operation with a wide range of representatives from the education community.
