The Education (Pastoral Care of Tertiary and International Learners) Code of Practice 2021 (the Code) highlights the standards of wellbeing and safety for learners.  This code requires Devereux-Blum Training and Development to:

  • Support learner’s wellbeing (physically and mentally) and safety through a whole-of-Provider approach.
  • Foster a positive learning environment across diverse learner groups (ethnicity, gender, social and cultural networks).
  • Provide a pathway to engage with the learner voice.
  • Honour Te Tiriti o Waitangi
  • Provide a clear complaints and disputes resolution process.

Outcomes 1 and 2 focus on education providers taking a whole of organisation approach to learner wellbeing and safety, and that learner voice is embedded into the organisation.

Outcomes 3 and 4 focus on wellbeing and safety practices for all tertiary providers and relate to physical and digital learning environments.

Outcomes 5 to 12 focus on student accommodation and international students.

As part of the code, Devereux-Blum Training and Development are required to undertake a yearly self-review and submit an attestation to NZQA.   Our 2023 review is available on request.  Please email Sharyn.
