Teachers are able to engage more deeply with the language and culture of the languages they teach through the immersion and scholarship programmes available in New Zealand and abroad, some of which are sponsored by overseas governments. These are unique professional development opportunities which have great and lasting effects upon teacher capability, student achievement and the success of Learning Languages in New Zealand schools.
Scholarships to German are available to teachers of German in New Zealand to help them develop professionally through the immersion stage. The programmes are flexible with regards to language level and length of stay.
Find out more about the opportunities on the Scholarships to Germany page.
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.
