Pathways College of Bible & Mission is a signatory to the Code of Practice for the Pastoral Care of Tertiary and International Learners. On 1 January 2022, this new code of practice came into effect. It replaced the two previous codes of practice for domestic and international students.
The Code can be accessed online at:
Te Reo Maori Version
Pathways College is fully committed to supporting the wellbeing of our students and takes practical action towards this goal with a range of policies, processes, and support services designed to ensure positive experiences and outcomes for all our students.
The Code has 12 Outcomes as follows:
Outcomes 1 and 2 focus on education providers taking a whole of organisation approach to learner wellbeing and safety, and that learner voice is embedded into the organisation.
Outcomes 3 and 4 focus on wellbeing and safety practices for all tertiary providers and relate to physical and digital learning environments.
Outcomes 5 – 7 focus on student accommodation to ensure that it is safe and creating inclusive communities.
Outcomes 8 to 12 have the same requirements to the previous international Code for tertiary learners, and ensures international learners have access to the right information and support before and during their study.
Our desire is to create exceptional learning experiences for our students and to provide specialist support to enable students to develop socially, emotionally, spiritually, academically and culturally during their time at Pathways College. A comprehensive pastoral care programme for our students has been established to achieve this goal.
Pathways College is committed to undertaking self-review and continuous improvement throughout the year to adhere to the requirements of Code of Practice 2021 for the pastoral care of tertiary and international students.
What to do if something goes wrong?
If any student has a concern about their experience at Pathways College, the procedure for resolving any complaints or issues is outlined in the Student Handbook issued at Orientation and available on Pathways Connect.
