We are seeking to procure peer to peer teaching networks, subject associations, and communities of practice to form the Networks of Expertise (NEX).
NEX will offer support to grow and strengthen teacher capability through Professional Learning & Development (PLD) using a ‘for teachers, by teachers’ approach, with an emphasis on the Literacy & Communication and Maths Strategy, the curriculum, assessment and aromatawai change programme and NCEA change programme for years 11 – 13.
NEX will focus on eight learning areas: English, Mathematics, Science, Technology, Learning Languages, The Arts and Health & Physical Education), Early Learning, and Social Sciences.
Networks who can identify and engage with educators that may have low levels of professional support in their subject area (i.e., rural, and small schools, teacher aides) will also be considered for this opportunity.
