Teaching Council requirements for English language proficiency

From 1 January 2019, Teaching Council shifted their approach to focus on evidence-based English language proficiency. Many people seeking to register as teachers speak a number of languages. They bring a wealth of knowledge and experience to the teaching profession.  This is recognised in their approach to language competency by providing opportunities for candidates to demonstrate their competency in English or te reo Māori.  They accept a broad range of specified evidence.  Please ensure you meet their requirements for registration by reviewing their website page below.
