Workshops for middle leaders


Regional workshops and clusters provide opportunities for middle leaders to come together to develop learning-focused communities. Key focus areas are supporting middle leaders with the NCEA standards alignment process and with learning area literacy and language needs, in the context of The New Zealand Curriculum.
Workshop information has recently been updated to include the 2014 timetable.


NEW FEATURE – National events and The New Zealand Curriculum


This new section on NZC Online highlights national days and weeks of importance. National events are linked to The New Zealand Curriculum and ideas, resources, and tools are provided to help schools get involved. The feature on Anzac Day shows how you can support students to explore values such as respect and honour, examine the social science concepts of identity, continuity and change, and develop key competencies.
