Charter consultation assistance for students

Charter consultation assistance for students and learners released.

The Aotearoa Tertiary Students' Association (ATSA) welcomes the release by the Tertiary Education Commission (TEC) of an official Charter Consultation booklet for students and student associations within the public tertiary education sector. Its publication reinforces the rights of student associations to be treated as key stakeholders in the sector.

"A considerable amount of our time and financial resources over the past four months have been used in helping student associations respond effectively to TEI requirements to consult with stakeholders in the development of their charters", ATSA National President Julie Pettett stated today. "We take some pride in the fact that ATSA led the way in asking the TEC to help facilitate a workshop for our student association members that became the basis for the development of student focussed guide."

The document, titled "Charter Consultation: A resource for students/learners and student /learner representative organisations in large tertiary organisations" is directed at student and student associations at polytechnics, wananga, colleges of education and universities. It can be accessed at http://www.tec.govt.nz/about_tec/publications.htm.

The Aotearoa Tertiary Students' Association urges all student associations to obtain a copy of the booklet and give it very wide distribution throughout their networks. The document will also be of value to other key stakeholders such as staff and community organisations who have interest in helping to shape the future of tertiary education in Aotearoa New Zealand.

ATSA believes that TEI senior executives, CEOs, Vice Chancellors and Council chairs and members would also benefit from reading this important document. "Building the capability of management and stakeholders to engage in effective consultation is vital if the purpose of Charters and Profiles within the tertiary education strategy is to be realised," Pettett concluded.
