    Hello, and welcome to the forum. I'm sure you'll get some help when NZ wakes up later on.

    Have you checked out: www.teacherscouncil.govt.nz/ or www.teachnz.govt.nz/
    I'm a preschool teacher so I've been doing my research. You'd have to get assessed by NZQA to see what level you are at and also for salary rate. NZ and US don't have equilvent qualifcations for my field but for Primary Teachers it is different. Good luck.

    I just finished the process and it was fairly simple. Get fully assessed by NZQA and apply to the NZ Teaching council. I'd recommend submitting to both agencies simultaneously because of one requiring original documents and the other notorized copies; also because of the length of time each takes to process.

    GOod luck

    I already have NZQA and NCTC but with Mala V mentioning new policy/regulations and now exemptions I would like to check that I still have everything I need.
    I've looked on the appropriate websites but can't see any mention.

    Mala V could you let us know where these new things are please?
