Annual self-review and attestation

Education providers that are signatories of the Education (Pastoral Care of International Students) Code of Practice 2016 (the Code) must undertake and document self-review of its performance against the required outcomes and processes set out in the Code.

Signatories are required to attest annually to NZQA that they have undertaken this self-review. This applies even if an education organisation does not have international students currently enrolled.

Education organisations that are signatories to the Code must:

Each year, signatories must submit a self-review attestation to NZQA. NZQA will inform signatories when the self-review attestations are due.

How to undertake a self-review

Organisations need to evaluate their performance by:

  • gathering data about their pastoral care of international students (e.g. processes, student support, surveys of students or others)
  • reflecting on the data (e.g. gaps, strengths, weaknesses, opportunities)
  • coming to conclusions about their own effectiveness
  • using the reflections to make ongoing improvements to pastoral care of international students.

Organisations need to keep a record of the self-review, including the evidence, for their own quality assurance purposes, as well as for external evaluation and review.

How to submit a self-review attestation

Tertiary organisations and schools use their online service to submit the self-review attestation form.
