Scholarships

Information about 2015 TeachNZ scholarships is now available. The categories, types and number of scholarships vary from year to year. The table below outlines the scholarships that will be available for 2015.

TeachNZ scholarships focus on areas where teachers are needed. Every year we review data on teaching vacancies and trends in the teaching workforce to make sure the scholarships continue to target areas of need.

Over recent years the number of teachers retiring or leaving the profession has remained low, which means there is strong competition for the teaching vacancies available. However, there are still areas where higher numbers of teachers are needed: Māori-medium and te reo Māori teachers, and early childhood teachers with skills in te reo Māori or Pacific languages.
