The Exemption Process – The Ministry’s Perspective – 23 September 2013

Concerned about writing your exemption? Thinking about home education? Parent of an under 6 year old? New to home educating?

The Exemption Process – The Ministry’s Perspective a forum presented by the Ministry of Education in association with Auckland Home Educators Inc

Monday 23 September 2013 at 7.15pm (meet at 6.45pm)
Ministry of Education, Level 3, Eden 5 Building, 12-18 Normanby Road, Mt Eden

Cost: AHE Members – free / Non-AHE Members – $3 per person (please bring correct cash)

To legally home educate in NZ, a parent/guardian must obtain a “Certificate of Exemption from Enrolment at a Registered School” for each child.

This Forum aims to clarify the process involved.
Be guided through the application document by the staff who handle them.
Gain knowledge to write yours with confidence or help others to prepare theirs.
Primary, secondary and special needs considerations will be covered along with various approaches right through from ACE to unschooling.

Although staff are unable to go through your individual draft, this is certainly an opportunity to ask questions.

Remember! Local Ministry staff are not responsible for the Government’s imposition of this legal requirement so this is not an appropriate time to question that issue.

Entry is strictly by pre-registration only and places are limited by room capacity.
Registrations close at midnight Thursday 19 September.
Please register only if you can commit to being there. Government building security means an attendance list must be supplied in advance. Avoid the embarrassment and disappointment of being denied entry if you are not on that list! Building doors will be unmanned after 7.10 pm so entry will be unavailable after that – no exceptions!
To register, email govtliaison@ahe.org.nz (please note the two ‘i’s in liaison) with “AHE MoE Forum in the Subject Header or reply off list to this email.
