Code of Practice 2022
The Ministry of Education (MoE) has released a new code of practice for the pastoral care of domestic tertiary and international learners which comes into effect on 1 January 2022. All tertiary education providers and schools enrolling international students will be expected to comply with the code from 1 January 2022.
The code sets out the expectations that tertiary education organisations and schools enrolling international students must meet for learners’ safety and wellbeing. It brings together the current codes for domestic and international learners with separate parts of the code for:
- student accommodation
- tertiary providers enrolling international learners
- schools enrolling international students (this part restates existing requirements for schools).
