VOCATIONAL EDUCATION REFORM
The Government has presented a proposal to reform the current vocational education system, including apprenticeship training and training offered by Institutes of Technology and Polytechnics.
At this point, it is only a proposal. However there is an extremely short consultation period.
As an association we support all forms of education and believe that every individual has the right to choose their learning path. We strongly believe that quality is the key for both training and learners. The NZARBP's position is that we would like the status 'quo' to remain and are extremely concerned for the future of our industry, if the proposed changes are adopted by the Government.
For further information about the proposed changes and links for feedback submission, please visit the Ministry of Education website, through the link below.
It is important that your voice is heard, therefore we ask that you be part of this conversation for the future of our industry!
THERAPEUTIC PRODUCTS REGULATORY BILL
The Ministry of Health is now seeking feedback on the draft of a NEW Therapeutic Products Bill.
This bill would replace the Medicines Act 1981 and establish a new regulatory scheme for therapeutic products. This includes medicines (including cell and tissue products) and medical devices.
This is an extremely important issue that will dictate the future of industry technologies and devices. Laser, PRP, needling services, tattooing, numbing creams cosmetic filler and HIFU are only a few of the services that could be affected.
Submissions can be made up until 5.00pm, Thursday 18 April 2019.
