PPTA Subject Association Forum
During the second week of the holidays, Martin East and Annabelle Sinclair represented NZALT at the annual Subject Association Forum organised by the PPTA in Wellington. This annual get-together provides a forum to share and discuss matters of mutual interest, and to engage with Ministry and NZQA officials about current issues. Topics for discussion this year included the Ministry's plans for a new professional learning and development landscape, NCEA on-line moderation and management processes, and how subject associations can strengthen their advocacy on behalf of their members. A fuller report on key matters arising will be issued in due course.
