For schools and kura with international students, ERO evaluates the overall quality of education provided for international students. This includes an audit of the schools’ self-review of policies and processes that give effect to the Education (Pastoral Care for International Students) Code of Practice 2016 undertaken on behalf of the Code Administrator, the New Zealand Qualifications Authority. ERO focuses on the overall quality of provision for international students, their pastoral care, the education programme provided and the students’ academic progress, achievement and social integration.
You can read the Code on the New Zealand Qualifications Authority website under The Education (Pastoral Care for International Students) Code of Practice 2016.
The Ministry of Education also has information about the Code on their site under Exchange Programmes which meet the Code of Practice for International Students.
The International Students School Assurance Statement (MS Word 109KB) needs to be completed as part of your ERO review.
