An opportunity for teachers of English to extend their knowledge, skills, attitudes and values essential to the teaching of English.
We support teachers by:

  • Providing professional development in the teaching and learning of English
  • Building pedagogical practice in the English learning area
  • Helping teachers to inquire into their practice by using their knowledge, data and tools
  • Evaluating the impact of an inquiry into practice

This will be achieved by:

  • Developing teachers’ knowledge of English language, literature and literacy skills
  • Building skills in ways of using data to improve literacy in English
  • Tailoring a programme to meet the needs of students using authentic and complex settings


Support may be provided using in-depth support for a team of teachers in a school, or working with a group of schools as a cluster. This support includes regular visits to meet with focus teachers, observations, wananga each term to share progress of target students.
