  • Two key projects that we are excited to update you on are:
  • Vetting requests for teachers will now be processed in the standard 20 working days or more following the expiration of our expedited vetting service agreement with Police. 
  • We would like to acknowledge the passing of Sean Henry Bennet-Ogden, who was a prominent leader in te ao Māori, the education sector and in the history of the Teaching Council Matatū Aotearoa.
