New Zealand Dept. of Education, Wellington.
Based on a working paper drawn up by teacher educators in New Zealand in 1978, this report continues the national review of teacher training begun in 1977. The status of teacher education in New Zealand is noted in sections treating the strengths and weaknesses of the present system. Position statements are offered on the following topics: (1) recruitment; (2) selection of prospective teachers; (3) training programs; (4) practical training (student teaching); (5) teacher qualifications; (6) teacher induction process; (7) continuing teacher education; (8) evaluation of the initial preparation, induction, and continuing education of teachers; (9) schools of education; (10) the future role of teachers' colleges; and (11) the status and role of a proposed national council on teacher education. Recommendations for implementing the policies in each topic area are offered. Appendices provide an analysis of the changing nature of teaching at all levels, a description of the open entry system for schools of education, a sample induction program for beginning teachers, estimates of student population and teacher demand, and lists of contributors to the report.
