2022 Chinese Language Support Grant.

2022 Chinese Language Support Grant

February 15 2022


This fund is to enhance and develop Chinese language programmes within schools.  Tui Tuia Languages will provide grants of up to $10,000 for schools to develop and support their own classroom teachers in order to build a sustainable Chinese language programme within their school. 

We expect to support up to 15 schools throughout Aotearoa New Zealand.  The fund will be paid to schools by the end of Term One, 2022. The training and support will start at the beginning of Term Two, 2022.

This is a unique opportunity for schools to work closely with language and culture advisers and facilitators from Tui Tuia to further develop Chinese language learning programmes.  We are fully committed to supporting school communities to build language learning pathways for students. 


All proposals are welcome and will be selected based mainly on the plan for how funding will be utilised with priority given to applications that:  

  • Are from Primary and Intermediate schools 
  • Focus on language learning pathways and sustainable approaches to language learning  
  • Are from schools which do not have an existing Chinese language programme or need to reboot their programme. 

The application form includes some possible actions and considerations when planning for a languages programme. Our facilitators are also available for help with developing your plan so please contact us for further information.

If the application is successful, the Senior Leadership Team of the school will commit to: 

Enrolling classroom teachers in a Language Teaching pedagogy course provided by Tui Tuia during 2022
reporting back to Tui Tuia at the end of the year (report template will be provided)
Application closing date:
The closing date for applications is Friday, 11 March 2022

Please contact us at tuituia.languages@auckland.ac.nz for more information, and to request an application form
