Criminal Convictions

Unless covered by the Clean Slate Act 2004, Wintec requires you to declare any criminal convictions or pending charges for the purpose of establishing your eligibility and suitability for programme enrolment under the Education Act 1989 and/or the Children’s Act 2014. It can also help us to advise and assist you in selecting an appropriate programme of study.

The requirement to disclose convictions or pending charges is ongoing and you must inform the Wintec Team Manager of your programme should you be charged with a criminal offence during your programme of study.

Wintec may require you to consent to a Police Check to allow Wintec to verify your conviction history and any sentences or punishments imposed. For certain programmes, a Police Check is mandatory (e.g. Children’s Workers programmes under the Children’s Act 2014) as specific criminal convictions will preclude a student from being able to undertake and complete practical components. Failure to provide consent for a Police Check, irrespective of whether mandatory under the law, may result in Wintec refusing to permit your entry into, suspending, or cancelling your enrolment in a programme of study.

If you have any questions or concerns about the potential impact of a criminal record or pending charge, you should contact the Student Enrolment and Information Centre.

Privacy Statement

The personal information you give Wintec is collected under the authority of the Education Act 1989. The collection, use, storage, exchange and updating of your personal information will be in accordance with the Privacy Act 1993.

Your personal information is collected for the purpose of Wintec performing its role and function as an educational provider under the Education Act 1989, including:
  • determining your eligibility and suitability for a programme of study or training;
  • establishing and maintaining academic records, such as enrolments and tracking your progress and results within a programme of study or training;
  • the administration and payment of tuition fees, including assisting with student loans and student allowances;
  • providing tuition and academic support;
  • providing student services (including the Students’ Association); and
  • maintaining discipline and order.

Your name, date of birth and residency status will be included in the National Student Index and will be used in an Authorised Information Matching programme with the New Zealand Birth Register. For further information, please visit the website: www.minedu.govt.nz/goto/nsi.

Other personal information that you give Wintec (for example, on your skills, aspirations, family circumstances, mental and physical wellbeing) may be used by Wintec to provide support and assistance through pastoral care and to provide a better service to you.

Wintec may be permitted or required, under legislation such as the Education Act 1989 and Social Security Act 2018, to compare or share (in order to check and verify) your personal information with other agencies such as the Ministry of Education, New Zealand Qualifications Authority, Tertiary Education Commission, Audit New Zealand, Ministry of Social Development (in relation to student loans and allowances), Work and Income New Zealand, Inland Revenue Department, Industry Training Organisations, Industry Licensing and Registration Boards, Immigration New Zealand, and Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade.

Wintec may also be required by law to release your personal information to agencies such as the New Zealand Police, Department of Justice, Ministry of Social Development (for matters other than student loans and allowances), and the Accident Compensation Corporation (ACC).

The personal information you give to Wintec may need to be shared with other educational organisations and/or placement providers (for work experience and/or work placements) so that you can complete practical components of your programme of study. Failure to provide consent for Wintec to share this information may result in you being unable to complete a practical component of your programme of study.

Under the Privacy Act 1993, you have rights of access to, and correction of, your personal information. Wintec will retain your personal information only for as long as required by law and in line with retention periods set out in our Information and Records Management Policy. Please contact Wintec’s Privacy Officer if you wish to enquire about your personal information held by Wintec.

You are not legally obliged to give your personal information to Wintec but if you do not provide all the information requested then your enrolment application may be declined.
