The Education Council of Aotearoa has recently reviewed the 12 Practicing Teacher Criteria, to become six 'Standards for the Teaching Profession'.  While these Induction and Mentoring resources make a minimal reference to the PTCs (a chapter at the end of each book), they have been heavily discounted.
