The abstract states::
Case Study: Teach First NZ: Diversifying pathways into teaching
The University of Auckland, in partnership with Teach First NZ, is proposing a two-year field-based qualification designed to address the shortage of teachers in areas of high poverty and educational underachievement. Particular attention is given to those subjects where it has been harder to attract teachers, such as science. This presentation will discuss how the proposed new programme plans to address the issues of under achievement and low uptake and success in STEM subjects.
