Employment-based Initial Teacher Education – Request for Information

The Minister of Education announced the launch of the Ministry of Educations 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.

The Ministry will be holding sessions with interested parties. These sessions will be held in three locations:





29 July 2019

15:00 – 17:00


Ministry of Education, 33 Bowen Street (Room 1:01), Wellington 

31 July 2019
