Today marks the start of Teach First NZ's first ever Summer Initial Intensive (SII).
The SII is the first part of the Teach First NZ programme, comprising a six-week residential programme for participants, over the summer.
The SII is delivered in partnership with the Faculty of Education at The University of Auckland. The focus of the programme is on developing the skills and knowledge to best prepare participants for the working in classroom from the start of the school year, and introduces the ongoing coursework that will continue over the two years.
We also have time in schools planned, and a mini 'summer school' teaching practicum in January. Participants are also introduced to the leadership development strand of the two-year programme.
