Parliament Report 21/12 (Competenz’s New Form)

The House has adjourned, so only answers to Written Questions came in, covering: TEO investigations; student debt; Ministerial meetings with NZUSA and TEU; and science and innovation. The Gazette covered: Competenz’s ITO recognition being given to a new body (the Competenz Trust) from 1 Jan 2016 (it appears to be a change in form involving the same people); and some new CAA rules for aviation training.

Relevance: low relevance.

Our Take

  • There weren’t many interesting answers to Written Questions, other than the rarity of Steven Joyce’s meetings with NZUSA and the TEU.
  • Competenz has shifted its activities from an incorporated society to a Trust, which gained approval as a charity in August 2015. The Gazette notice described below formally transfers ITO recognition to the new body.
