A FREE online programme for PCTs to help you gain a greater understanding of the curriculum refresh, and have an opportunity to connect with other PCTs and subject experts in your curriculum learning area via the Networks of Expertise (NEX).

Course overview

Teacher Development Aotearoa (TDA) in partnership with the PPTA invites Provisionally Certified Teachers (PCTs) to register for our FREE online curriculum support programme.


The Connecting and growing expertise programme is designed to provide you with specialised curriculum support alongside other PCTs at a similar point in their teaching journey.  It will provide you with an opportunity to kōrero, share your experiences, and a forum for you to ask curriculum questions in a space designed specifically for PCTs.  Attendance at the programme can be documented as evidence towards your teaching registration also.

As a participant you will:

  • Unpack and explore the understand, know, do model which will be the blueprint for all 8 curriculum areas in the next few years.
  • Be connected to NEX to develop lasting connections, to access curriculum support and professional development from expert subject kaiako.


The Connecting and growing expertise programme is delivered online and includes 3 workshop sessions.

  • Session 1 is a 3 hour interactive webinar about the new curriculum and NEX.
  • Sessions 2 and 3 are 60min follow-up Zoom sessions that support building the knowledge and skills introduced in Session 1 and provide an opportunity to check in with participants. The purpose of Session 3 is to reconnect and find out how things are going several months after Sessions 1 and 2.
  • There will be a max of 20 participants in each programme.
  • Time commitment: 5 hours.
