Maori Males in Early Childhood Teaching in New Zealand

S. Paurini made this Official Information request to Ministry of Education

Response to this request is long overdue. By law Ministry of Education should have responded by now (details and exceptions). You can complain to the Ombudsman.

From: S. Paurini

Dear Ministry of Education,

Just to follow up related request.

As at 2019, there are currently 348 unqualified male ECE teachers and 510 qualified male ECE teachers.

How many of those male ECE teachers are Maori?

How many of those Maori male ECE teachers are qualified and how many are unqualified?

Scholarships

In 2019, two Maori male ECE student teachers were awarded an ECE TeachNZ scholarship. What Teach NZ scholarship did each receive?

Since 2015, thirteen scholarships have been awarded to Maori male ECE teachers.

How many ECE Teach NZ scholarship applications were received 2015-2020 in total?

How many applicants were female and how many scholarships were awarded to females?

How many applicants were male and how many scholarships were awarded to males?

How many applicants were Maori males and how many scholarships were awarded to Maori males?

In five or six years just one male student 2015-2020 over the age 50 has been awarded an ECE TeachNZ scholarship. What was that scholarship? What was the student's ethnicity?

Yours faithfully,

S. Paurini

This email is to let you know that we’ll be providing you a single
response for all three requests for TeachNZ data that you lodged with the
Ministry of Education on 30 March 2020, 13 April 2020 and 20 April 2020.
We are needing to extend the timeframe of our response to your requests of
30 March and 13 April under section 15(1)(b) of the Act, due to the
consultations required to provide a response.

 

The Ministry’s response to the impacts of Covid-19 is continuing, which is
impacting on our ability to deliver some of our usual functions within the
normal timeframes.  We appreciate the importance of this information to
you, and we are working hard to provide you with information in response
to all of your requests on or before the 19 May 2020.

 

We are grateful for your patience and understanding in these unprecedented
times.

 

Please feel free to email us if you have any questions about this
extension. You can do this by emailing [1][email address].

 

Please be advised that should you have any concerns regarding this
extension you have the right to ask the Ombudsman to investigate our
decision to extend the timeframe. You can do this by writing to
[2][email address] or Office of the Ombudsman, PO Box 10152,
Wellington 6143.

 

Nâ matou noa, nâ

We appreciate your patience during the process of finalising our responses
to your requests, and we thank you for engaging with us while we were
answering them. Please find attached our response to three of your
requests.  The one remaining OIA response we have for you is your request
of 2 May 2020 for TeachNZ data breakdown, this is currently in sign out,
and will be with you shortly.  

 

It appears that when you tried to make contact with us yesterday you were
given some incorrect information for which I apologise. When callers have
a question about their OIA’s they should be forwarded through to myself. I
have been in touch with the team responsible for managing the phones to
try and avoid this occurring again.  

 

For your questions relating to the TeachNZ application process, we
recommend you contact Keshla Siemonek, Manager Scholarships and Awards, by
emailing [1][email address].
