The Education Code of Practice for Tertiary and International Learners

Our Values

  • To inspire learning through innovative teaching and programme design and caring individual attention.
  • To be fair and transparent in the delivery of our programmes.

Our Strategic Goals

NZSFW is committed to supporting you, your wellbeing and safety during your study with us.

Through a better understanding of our Māori heritage with specific focus on our food system and manaakitanga  (hospitality, kindness, generosity, support), NZSFW contributes to our education system and honours Te Tiriti o Waitangi and supports Māori–Crown relations.

The Code for Learner Wellbeing and Safety sets out the roles and responsibilities of tertiary education organisations (in promoting and supporting your wellbeing, development and educational achievement).

Under the Code, we will help you to be:

  • Safe, physically, and mentally
  • Respected and accepted for who you are
  • Supported in your learning and wellbeing
  • Connected with your social and cultural networks and
  • Able to have your say in decisions about services.

The Code has twelve outcomes.

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 relates to physical and digital learning environments.

Outcomes 5 – 7 focus on student accommodation to ensure that it is safe and creating inclusive communities.

Outcomes 8 – 12 have the same requirements to the previous international Code for tertiary learners, and ensures international learners have access to the right information and support before and during their study.
