2021 Support for PCTs/OTTs and Mentors English Medium and Pia and Pou Tautoko Māori Medium

COVID-19 update AUGUST 18 – Under COVID alert level 4 all workshops are postponed. As the lockdown evolves we will contact people enrolled with new dates or details of online workshop delivery.
All 90 minute topic - specific zooms, OTT zooms and e PCT online modules continue as usual.

ESS is delivering the Ministry of Education funded PLD support for provisionally certificated teachers (PCTs in English medium, Pia in Māori medium), overseas trained teachers with provisional certification (OTTs) and mentor teachers (Pou Tautoko). Mentors include tutor teachers, PCT Coordinators, SCTs, HODs and school leaders. This professional development is available for teachers in English medium schools, years 1-13, and Māori medium settings, throughout Aotearoa/New Zealand.

Choose from our range of face-to-face and online delivery modes to best meet your needs within your induction and mentoring programme and build PCT capability implementing national education and learning priorities.

We remain adaptable to the COVID environment and should levels change, will modify our support accordingly.

OTTs Given the current New Zealand border restrictions it is difficult to ascertain the number of OTTs requiring support with their induction and mentoring programme in 2021 and to determine the best locations for workshops. If you are an OTT, or have OTTs at your school please register here.
