Do you teach Chinese Mandarin, Japanese or Korean in your school?
Would you like to join a network to support you in this role?
Do you want more practical teaching solutions and ideas based on well-researched theory?

If your answer to these questions is “yes”, then this new programme of cluster-based, teacher-led action research is definitely for you!

Join the ILEP team for a two-term intensive programme that will offer you the following:

Workshop 1 (full day)

  • Language as a process – real life language in the classroom
  • Modelling of best practice – followed by reflection and creation of your own resources
  • Turning theory into practice
  • Collaborating with others to create sustainable networks through a cluster inquiry
  • Teacher toolkit - practical tools to apply straight away
  • Support for non-native speakers to select a language course to complete during the two term programme

Online workshops (60mins each)

  • Four workshops over the two term programme, after school hours
  • Delivered in the flipped learning model – podcast and reading
  • Discussion forum and practical application

Classroom visits

  • 2 in-school support visits over the two term programme – cluster inquiry and application of toolkit focus
  • Follow up discussions with the programme facilitator
  • Progression in teaching pedagogy from visit one to visit two

Teacher videos

  • 2-5 minutes of evidence of your teaching based on elements of the programme

Workshop 2 (full day)

  • Discussion, analysis and next steps based on group feedback of teacher video
  • Big picture language learning – tying all elements of the programme to the NZC
  • Individual impact of the cluster inquiry
  • Sustainability of the cluster and inquiry

  • 2 x TRDs to cover workshops 1 and 2
  • Participant travel to join workshops (where applicable)
  • Up to $500 per participant (non-native speakers) towards a language course
