Educational Partnership Study Award
Te Wānanga Toi Tangata Division of Education offers Educational Partnership Study Awards to all education settings in which our students are placed as part of their initial teacher education or counsellor education programme. In recognition of the partnership, the equivalent of a 15 point paper will be awarded to you for every student teacher or student counsellor your education setting supports. The credits can be used at your discretion to provide additional professional learning opportunities for your staff.
We have papers on offer for face to face in Hamilton and Tauranga, with most papers at all levels also offered online at times that work for those already working in education settings. This includes programmes/papers for those who are interested in:
- Engaging in conversations about education – that is those people in your school community who seek to become registered teachers or wish to extend their understanding of the sector (i.e. Teacher Aides, Learning Assistants, and support staff might take papers in the BTchg, GradDipTchg, or the Teachers Aide Modules).
- Joining the conversations – your classroom teachers and middle leaders who are seeking to extend their understandings and practices beyond the learning in their undergrad/grad qualifications (i.e. Masters of Education, Masters of Educational Leadership, Masters Educational Management, Masters of Disability and Inclusion Studies, Masters of Counselling).
- Leading the conversations – senior leaders, BOT representatives, or principals who are at the forefront of policy, curriculum developments, evidence-based practice, educational leadership and management (i.e. Educational Doctorate [EdD] and PhD, and soon to be released Individual Paper Credits at 900 level as stand alone papers or as pathway into EdD).
How you use these credits is for you as an educational setting to determine, with there being two small caveats: those who are the associate/mentor teachers are considered for support first, and papers/programmes enrolled in are offered in Te Wānanga Toi Tangata Division of Education.
Each educational partnership setting will receive a letter with detailed information about available credits for them to use for the following year.
Please, check with your principal/centre leader/manager re available credits and opportunities, or email [email protected] for any enquiries about this award.
