About the Teacher-led Innovation Fund - Round 5

All kaiako/teachers in state and state integrated kura/schools, and certified kaiako/teachers in early learning services and kōhanga reo, including those holding Tohu Whakapakari, are eligible to apply.

In Round 5 we are particularly interested in how the design of local curriculum can support rich learning opportunities and new teacher practices that will engage, motivate and impact positively on learner outcomes.

To support students’ learning pathways, project teams are encouraged to partner with post-secondary education providers as well as and business and community organisations, where relevant to the project.
