The charter sets out what new primary teachers can expect when they begin their careers. Schools will be invited to adopt the charter and identify themselves as good employers for new teachers.

It has been developed by NZEI Te Riu Roa members and will be launched at the New Educator’s Network hui in early May. It puts a clear stake in the ground as to what is acceptable practice around the employment and induction of new teachers.
