- Endeavour Teacher Fellowships
The Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment and the Ministry of Education, in consultation with the Office of the Prime Minister’s Chief Science Advisor, are working on finalising a draft Science in Society strategic plan. The National Science Challenge (NSC) Panel identified ‘Science and Society’ as a fundamental leadership challenge for the government. The draft plan has identified a number of new strategic actions and reframing of current programmes to achieve the objectives of the plan. As part of the work on developing the plan, government has recognised that the teaching of science from Years 1 – 10 needs increased focus. In 2014/15 there will be changes to the current Teachers Fellowships programme which reflects this change in emphasis. As a result, Endeavour Fellowships will no longer be offered.
