Country: New Zealand - Subject: Education, vocational guidance and training

  1. New Zealand - Education, vocational guidance and training - Law, Act

    Education and Training Act 2020 (2020 No 38). - Legislation on-line

    Adoption: 2020-07-31 | Date of entry into force: 2020-08-01 | NZL-2020-L-110161

    The Act repeals and replaces all major existing education and training legislation. It is intended to be simpler, more user-friendly and less prescriptive than the previous legislative framework.

    The Education and Training Act 2020:

    - introduces a new structure that follows the journey of students through education, starting with early learning, moving to schooling and then tertiary and vocational training,
    - moves some prescriptive detail directly into regulations (so these provisions will not be found in the Act),
    - moves other detailed provisions into Schedules at the end of the Act, with “sunset clauses”, meaning that they will expire after a set period of time and new regulations will need to be developed to replace them, and
    - retains large parts of the existing education legislation, which were transferred into the Act unchanged. We took the opportunity to update some of the language throughout the Act, where we could do so without changing the effect of the law itself.
