Risk assessment - Gazetted risk criteria

A notice was published in the New Zealand Gazette on 22 January 2015 specifying the risk assessment criteria for tertiary education institutions (TEIs). You can also read the notice in full.

Section 195A of the Education Act 1989 (“the Act”) requires the Secretary for Education to determine and publish in the New Zealand Gazette criteria for assessing the level of risk to the operation and long-term viability of tertiary education institutions, and the level of risk to the education performance of students enrolled at polytechnics. The notice sets out these criteria.

These risk assessment criteria will be considered by the Chief Executive of TEC and the Minister for Tertiary Education, Skills and Employment when considering whether an institution is at risk in a way that may warrant intervention under Parts 15 and 15A of the Act.
