Boards must continue to meet the criteria for having an employment-based trainee teaching (EBTT) position. If the conditions are not met, the trainee teacher position will be reviewed. Those conditions are that:
Once established and an appointment made, the EBTT position is operational for as long as the trainee teacher is on the programme. The position will lapse once the trainee teacher completes the programme. Any changes to the trainee teacher, their circumstances or the position must be notified to the Ministry.
If an EBTT withdraws from their programme of study, the Board must inform the Ministry by writing to EB.TT@education.govt.nz. The Board can either re-advertise the position and appoint an eligible applicant, or allow the EBTT position to lapse.
