GrowingNZ Teacher's Day Out - Register Now!

Professional development (PD) Canterbury, Southland

Posted: 03 August 2020
Notice reference #: 1HA9QF

Since 2014, GrowingNZ has been sharing with teachers all over New Zealand the many exciting career opportunities and pathways available to students in our innovative food & fibre sectors. We’re keen for young kiwis to be informed about and inspired by the range of opportunities available in our sector.

This year we are pleased to be hosting a GrowingNZ Teachers’ Day Out in two South Island regions; Canterbury and Southland. 

This FREE event is designed as a professional development day especially for teachers. Throughout the day we’ll visit local producers and organisations in your region, with a focus on science, technology and business. You’ll meet with business owners and employees who have taken different career pathways and hold a diverse range of roles in our food & fibre sectors. You’ll hear different perspectives first-hand that you can share with your students back in your classroom.

We’re still finalising the programme but for an idea of what you can expect check out our previous GrowingNZ Teachers' Days Out and register for an event in your region here

Transport, morning tea and lunch are provided so all you need to do is turn up and jump on the bus!

Feel free to share this event with your colleagues, especially those teaching science and commerce, and your school’s career educators. We’d love them to join us too.

"The best part of the day was learning about the diversity of jobs – I thought I knew a bit about this industry, but I learnt more"
