Exploring Effective Practice Awards 2024


EEP awards pay for teacher release and travel to enable teachers to visit other colleagues to gather, share, and discuss ideas, pedagogy, and resources for the language classroom.  These awards are funded through our Networks of Expertise (NEX) funding from the Ministry of Education.  

There are five EEP awards available in 2024.  The award covers one day of relief (TRD) to visit another teacher(s) of your language. Please note that the award must be taken over one day, not split into half days.

Teachers may also apply for funding to cover travel costs (reimbursement of petrol costs, airfares, accommodation and/or airport transfers where applicable). TRD costs may be invoiced directly to NZALT and other approved expenses will be reimbursed on receipt of proof of payment.

Priority will be given to applicants who:

  • are first or second-year teachers or new to teaching a language
  • are first-time HoDs/HoFs
  • teach in geographically isolated areas
  • teach a language which has limited resourcing
  • provide a clear rationale for applying 

The deadline for 2024 EEP applications is at 5pm on Friday, 29 March . The award must be used in Terms 2 or 3 of 2024.

Please apply for this award here.
