Scholarship Programmes for Teachers of Japanese


Teachers are able to engage more deeply with the language and culture of the languages they teach through the scholarship programmes available as part of the immersion stage of the PLD pathway. 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.

For teachers of Japanese wishing to develop through an immersion experience, there are different opportunities available through ILEP, in conjunction with overseas Japanese language associations and governments.
