Education and Training (Teaching Council Fees and Costs) Amendment Bill

Introduced on Aug 10. The Bill enables the Teaching Council to fix fees so that it can recover costs for all its functions and powers. It would also retrospectively validate payments for fees collected by the Teaching Council since Feb 1 2021 after those fees were quashed by the High Court. First reading supported only by Labour with all other parties objecting to the retrospective nature of the bill which would add costs for teachers. Referred to the Education and Workforce Committee with a report back of Sept 16.
