Partnership Schools | Kura Working Group Invites Indications of Interest

The Partnership Schools | Kura Hourua Working Group is seeking indications of interest (IOI) from groups who may be considering applying to establish a Partnership School in February 2014.

Working Group Chair Catherine Isaac said there would be no formal processes undertaken until the Education Amendment Bill 2012 had made its way through Parliament.

“However, while the Bill is being considered, the Working Group would like to help interested parties in understanding what information is likely to be required, and the quality and rigour that would be expected in applications.

“Publishing information about these requirements will also provide more clarity to all those taking an interest in the Partnership Schools | Kura Hourua initiative, including those considering making submissions on the Bill.

“The Working Group is also interested in learning more about the nature of proposals that are likely to come through from parties wishing to establish a school.

“Overall we want to ensure that the process is open and transparent and as much information as possible is available to those who may want to take up this opportunity”, said Ms Isaac.

Interested parties will need to complete the IOI form and submit it to the Working Group by 1 February 2013. The Group will review all IOIs and will provide submitters with feedback which they can use to help prepare for the full application process.

Interested parties are not obliged to participate in the IOI process and those who do not do so will still be able to submit a full application when these are called for.

The timeline for the formal application process is subject to the passage of the Education Amendment Bill through the House of Representatives. The Bill sets out the legal framework for Partnership Schools | Kura Hourua and is currently being considered by the Education and Science Select Committee. The Select Committee is due to report back to Parliament by 18 April 2013.

More information about Partnership Schools | Kura Hourua and the IOI form can be found on the Working Group’s website: http://nzmcs.education.govt.nz/.
