About the course
All proposals are welcome and will be selected based mainly on the plan for how funding will be utilised with priority given to applications that:
- Are from Primary and Intermediate schools
- Focus on language learning pathways and sustainable approaches to language learning
- Are from schools which do not have an existing Chinese language programme or need to reboot their programme.
We expect to support up to 20 schools throughout Aotearoa New Zealand. The fund will be paid to schools by the end of Term 1, 2023. The training and support will start at the beginning of Term 2, 2023.
This is a unique opportunity for schools to work closely with language and culture advisers and facilitators from Tui Tuia to further develop Chinese language learning programmes. We are fully committed to supporting school communities to build language learning pathways for students.
