Teachers are at the forefront of educating our young people, but it’s also important that they keep educating themselves. We have two areas that fulfill this mission.
Firstly, we manage the Government, Language Immersion Awards (LIA), which allow teachers learning languages to travel, live and study overseas. These awards are fully funded and for language teachers an important part of classroom pedagogy.
Secondly, we run our Educational Advantage programme, where we bring teachers for other countries into New Zealand and immerse them in our culture and classrooms.
