What are the law changes about? Why are law changes needed?

Law changes will make sure the law is fit for purpose to improve learner wellbeing and safety. They will make sure the code and dispute resolution scheme consistently focus on learner wellbeing and safety, and make it easier for providers to work with the code.

Law changes will reinforce commitment to Te Tiriti o Waitangi. They will improve the long-term relevance of the code and disputes resolution scheme so both can be managed efficiently.

How will this fit in the law change process?

Any proposed law changes will be included in an amendment Bill. During the Select Committee process for the Bill next year, there will be opportunity for further input into the design and content of the law proposals.

The law changes we are proposing would enable further development of the new code and the dispute resolution scheme rules. This could also build in what we’ve learned from the new code and scheme. If these proceed, there will be further opportunities to comment on the draft documents in the future.
