Itinerant Teachers of Music
The ITM role in schools is vulnerable because these teachers are generally part-time, often teaching across a number of schools, and non-permanent.
These guidelines have been prepared by PPTA Te Wehengarua to assist Itinerant Teachers of Music (ITMs) and schools to work their way through a range of issues:
•Gaining and maintaining full registration as a teacher
•Gaining a Limited Authority to Teach
•Appraisal and attestation
•Employment, e.g. advertising, letters of appointment, collective agreement coverage, etc.
(Updated September 2015 to account for changes to the teacher registration framework.)
The guidelines were developed by a group consisting of ITMs, Music HODs, school leaders and PPTA staff. The registration aspects have been checked by the Education Council for accuracy.
