Notice reference #: 1H9tcr

For all OTTs working towards gaining full certification, teaching in schools (Y1–13).

In term 1 we started our first round of workshops for OTTs focussing on Te Reo Māori, tikanga Māori  and culturally responsive pedagogy. To further assist OTTs (and their mentors) in tailoring their induction and mentoring programme to focus on teaching in the New Zealand context we are offering:

OTT Workshop 2: Developing understanding of the New Zealand Curriculum (NZC).

This workshop is being delivered nationwide and recognises the skills OTTs bring to the New Zealand education system. It aims to develop OTTs understanding of the nature of education in Aotearoa/New Zealand and the NZC.
