LEOTC is a contestable fund for organisations to provide New Zealand students with learning experiences outside of the classroom. The Ministry is seeking quality programmes to support the Social Sciences and Languages learning areas in The New Zealand Curriculum and Te Marautanga o Aotearoa. Organisations with successful proposals will be invited to negotiate a three year contract with the Ministry beginning 1 January 2017.
LEOTC providers are organisations that hold significant community resources that support and enhance student learning, including (but not limited to): museums, art galleries, zoos, historic parks, performing arts, science and outdoor education centres.
Goals of LEOTC funding:
• to provide innovative, hands-on, high quality, curriculum-focused programmes to students in authentic Aotearoa/New Zealand contexts
• to offer programmes that enrich classroom teaching and learning and provide learning experiences not readily available in schools
• to work in partnership with schools to ensure that learning experiences are designed to effectively meet the learning needs of participating students
• to make best use of their resources, expertise and unique context and content to build on and enhance teaching and learning in the classroom, contributing to increasing student engagement and achievement.
