COVID-19

Posted in Uncategorised

As the COVID-19 level of response has been raised to the Alert 3 Level, Speech New Zealand has made the decision to cancel all Examination Tours until further notice. Theory Assignments and Examinations are expected to continue as normal.

We are exploring the possibility of video examinations. For teachers who have already entered students for practical exams Speech NZ will contact Local Secretaries in the first instance regarding possible video examinations. Students who do not wish to do a video exam have the option of a full refund.

The safety of our students and examiners is paramount. The Ministry of Health has suggested that with continued vigilance we can help to reduce the chance of widespread community outbreak.

We wish to resume face-to-face examinations as soon as we can guarantee it is safe to do so; we know how much time and effort goes into preparing for each exam.
