SIGNAL is pleased to announce that 2020 Educate Scholarships for teachers have been boosted to a very generous $2000, as part of our commitment to enhancing Digital Technology capabilities at all levels within NZ, by training teachers to lead their school or region in delivering the highest quality education.
This means teachers and/or schools only need to cover the minimal cost of attending the Onsite Intensive in Christchurch in April, plus a small portion of the student services fees.
There are limited Scholarships available, so apply NOW!
Innovative teaching for teachers
Teachers in NZ schools need to stay up to date with the latest educational thinking around digital technology. SIGNAL's Educate programme strategies, skills and confidence to best deliver the new Digital Technologies curriculum.... while you are still teaching!
Convenient, relevant and empowering
If you are currently, or would like to teach Primary or Secondary School Digital Technologies, then SIGNAL's Educate programme is for you.
This is a two-year part-time distance learning professional development programme (including a short on-site session to complement your study).
Educate supports teachers to champion Computer Science and Programming subjects in schools, including the new NCEA Achievement Standards for Digital Technologies. Our award-winning educators have designed and developed digital technologies resources for many years, and are familiar with the needs of schools, Digital Technology teachers, and those providing outreach programmes.
Educate will build on your existing experience as a teacher, allowing you to apply your learning in your classroom.
Designed to suit the busy teacher
Each course is spread across the year (March to October) so that you can manage your workload by working around peak times in your teaching year. The two courses are sufficient to complete a Postgraduate Certificate in Education, or can be part of a Postgraduate Diploma in Education or Master of Education. You can earn the whole qualification in under two years.
Onsite block courses during school holidays are blended with online activities and support. Join an online community of practice founded on world-learning curriculum resources.
To support your study in the programme, apply for an Educate Scholarship today. These scholarships can be put towards course fees or towards other study costs including travel.
Professional development via Distance learning with an NZ wide cohort
3 day On Site Programme
