If you’re a teacher or principal, TeachNZ support you to inquire, investigate or study.
TeachNZ provide study awards so teachers and principals can complete part-time or full-time study in an educational priority area, improve their proficiency in te reo Māori me ōna tikanga and develop their skills as a bilingual or immersion teacher, complete a relevant Guidance Counsellor qualification, or take paid leave to train as a Reading Recovery Tutor.
They provide sabbaticals so teachers and principals have an opportunity to spend three, five or ten weeks completing a professional learning activity, as well as a chance for reflection and rejuvenation.
Their study support grants allow secondary and area school teachers to undertake study and/or research while continuing to teach. Each grant supports approximately four hours a week and a contribution of $500 towards course fees.
