Note: You do not need to be enrolled in an approved teaching programme when applying for these TeachNZ scholarships.
Māori Medium Primary Career Changer Scholarships are for people wanting to teach in bilingual and total immersion classes in primary schools.
They provide financial assistance so the loss of income you experience while studying is not a barrier to obtaining a teaching qualification.
These scholarships are also available for people who are not qualified teachers but are currently working in a school either teaching te reo Māori; as a specialist Māori language teacher such as a kaiārahi reo teacher; or who have Limited Authority to Teach in a Māori-medium school.
These scholarships are for people enrolling into their first year of an approved Māori-medium teacher education qualification commencing at the start of the 2019 academic year.
You can learn more about scholarships by reading our Scholarships: Frequently Asked Questions page.
