Abstract
Professional development opportunities for records managers in New Zealand have been patchy to say the least. Research undertaken last year found a substantial number of practising records managers have not studied at tertiary level at all. The introduction of a new undergraduate programme in records management has highlighted issues and challenges to be faced in the provision of education for this previously overlooked occupational group. This paper is structured as follows: the first part presents a brief overview of the provision of records management education in New Zealand, and this is followed by summary findings from the research into education, continuing education and training requirements. The second part of the paper considers issues relating to the new diploma. A brief conclusion includes recommendations for the role of professional associations in fostering professional development generally.
