2016 Code of Practice resources now available
NZQA has launched a new suite of resources to support understanding of the Education (Pastoral Care of International Students) Code of Practice 2016.
A key piece of the collateral is a special PDF that has been designed to make the Code of Practice more accessible to the sector – specifically signatories, agents, international students and their families, and relevant agencies.
Alongside this, NZQA has created a brochure that summarises the Code and provides important information for international students (at both a secondary and tertiary level), and their families and caregivers.
The pdfs and brochure are available in English as well as Arabic, German, Hindi, Japanese, Korean, Portuguese, simplified Chinese, Spanish, Thai and Vietnamese.
After widespread consultation across the sector, NZQA has also developed a Code of Practice toolbox, with the intention of helping signatories meet their obligations. The toolbox includes examples of good practice collected from around the sector that can be tailored and applied to different organisations.
These resources are available here on the NZQA website.
The Code of Practice toolbox can also be found on the NZQA website. It will develop over time, reflecting the material submitted by the sector.
