The panel that will review the role and functions of the Teachers' Council has been appointed.
Education Minister Hekia Parata says it will investigate the council's role and functions, its capability and any legislative changes that might be needed "to ensure effectiveness."
Ms Parata previously announced the review and says it's part of the government's programme to lift student achievement.
"The goal is to ensure that the Teachers' Council is a strong, professional body that will set and enforce high standards, promote effective teaching practice, develop the professional community of teachers and lead public discussion on education issues," she said on Friday.
The council is the regulatory body for teachers and is responsible for teacher registration and discipline.
The review panel chair is Pauline Winter, current head of the National Advisory Council on the Employment of Women.
Its members are Judith Aitken, a regional councillor, Robyn Baker, director of the Council for Educational Research, John Morris, headmaster of Auckland Grammar School, and Jonathan Krebs, a Crown prosecutor.
