We are pleased to invite peer-to-peer teaching networks and associations to respond to our Request for Proposal (RFP) and apply for funding as Networks of Expertise (NEX). NEX supports subject associations and other peer-to-peer networks to deliver support for teachers and kaiako.

The aim of NEX funding is to grow and strengthen networks across Aotearoa New Zealand that provide expert support to teacher and kaiako peers through means such as online sessions, resource sharing, inquiry clusters and face-to-face collaboration opportunities.

Alongside increasing the total number of networks, we are also looking to improve the support available to networks so that they are better able to thrive and contribute to a system that learns.

Peer to peer networks focused on supporting Māori Medium settings or te reo Māori teachers in English Medium settings are funded separately through the Kahu Pūtoi programme. More information on Kahu Pūtoi can be found on the Kahu Pūtoi website
