Employment-based Initial Teacher Education – Request for Information

The Minister of Education announced the launch of the Ministry of Education's Request for Information for employment-based ITE. The Ministry is seeking knowledge and insights about what a new employment-based ITE programme could look like.

In Budget 19, the Ministry received $11.7m in funding to develop one or more employment-based ITE programmes to attract 240 more teachers into the teaching profession over the next four years.

The aim of the programmes is to bolster staff numbers in secondary schools while attracting a wider diversity of trainees into teaching. We want new trainees to be able to learn while they earn – so schools can gain the skills and knowledge of more career-changers, Māori, and people from diverse backgrounds.

Six hui were held during July and August, and turnout was high. If you couldn’t make one of the hui and still want to talk to us, contact us at eb.ite@education.govt.nz or download the RFI questions below.

The closing date is 23 August, 2019.
