Aotearoa educators are shaking up the system

Teachers all over New Zealand have catapulted their practice into the 21st century. Since 2014, $2000 NEXT Generation Teacher scholarships have helped teachers gain their Postgraduate Certificate in Applied Practice (Digital & Collaborative Learning). Students from Kaitaia to Invercargill (and everywhere in-between) are now benefiting from future-focused, confident teachers who know which skills are needed to thrive in an unpredictable world. Along with the NEXT Foundation and The Mind Lab, a little courage and a lot of hard work, these teachers are changing the face of education.

Together we made thousands of students’ dreams a reality

What NEXT? Last chance for NEXT Generation Teacher Scholarships

The NEXT Foundation are offering one last chance for public school educators to apply for these fantastic $2000 scholarships. Our Postgraduate Certificate in Applied Practice (Digital & Collaborative Learning) kicks off all over the country from the week commencing 23rd July 2018.  If you’re a decile 1-3 educator, The Mind Lab will cover the remaining cost, meaning you’ll get a full $2750+GST scholarship. This opportunity’s too good to miss.

"It’s a privilege to be able to support teachers who want to better prepare our future generations of New Zealanders – there’s no more impactful place to invest in education."
