Teach First NZ recruits top graduates and professionals into schools where they teach while completing a postgraduate teaching qualification. Teach First NZ typically attracts higher numbers of Māori and Pacific recruits, and specialists in shortage subjects.
People selected by Teach First NZ go through an intensive 8-week preparation for teaching and are then employed for two years in schools that serve low-income communities.
Through this programme there will be up to 80 new teachers starting in classrooms in 2019 and another 80 in 2020.
