Important note: Members will be notified of the 2022 deadline for PD support applications by the end of Term 2, 2022.
A portion of the Association's annual income is placed into a PD support fund. The fund exists to help teachers access NZACS Professional Development (PD) in instances where costs may be prohibitive. Further details about the fund are outlined on the application form, which may be downloaded below. Alternately, you may contact the secretary for a Word version.
All applications must be sent IN ADVANCE of the event - any funding applications sent in for past events are unlikely to be considered.
Deadlines for applications are set prior to the earlybird conference closing dates and at other times during the year. Deadlines are advertised on the website and emailed to school principals well in advance. By meeting deadlines for applications, member schools enable the Executive to administer the fund in such a way as to help those schools needing assistance whilst not overspending the budget.
Recent examples of expenses funded include:
- NZACS conference fees
- travel to NZACS conferences
- NZACS/BTI regional PD fees
- travel and release costs for NZACS/BTI regional PD
