Teachers can engage more deeply with the language and culture of the languages they teach through the immersion programmes available as a component of the curriculum support pathway. These are unique professional development opportunities, with great and lasting effects upon teacher capability, student achievement and the success of Learning Languages in New Zealand schools.
German Teacher Enrichment
Immersion programmes are available to teachers of German in New Zealand. The programmes are flexible with regard to language level and length of stay.
Student Scholarships to Germany
Scholarships are available for students of German in New Zealand, on either a one-way or exchange programme with Germany. Teachers can inform their classes of the opportunities and support their applications.
Students participating in such programmes will bring authenticity to Learning Languages programmes and highlight the profile of languages within the school.
