NZALT Clusters 2023


NZALT clusters are regional networks of support for language teachers where you can meet with other language teachers in your area to share experience, ideas, resources, and moderation. Afternoon tea is provided, and petrol costs are able to be covered if you need to travel further afield to attend the cluster.  

If you would like to facilitate a cluster group in your area, please contact Juliet Kennedy to find out more. 

Here are the details of Term 1 cluster meetings we have so far. Please email the facilitator for your area if you would like to attend or learn more.  We will update people with details and dates of cluster meetings as they are confirmed.
