Teacher-led innovation fund (TLIF)

TLIF is designed to support the development of innovation in primary and secondary schools and kura (state and state integrated). The initiative encourages collaboration across schools and kura with PD providers, early years, tertiary, community, researchers, and experts of all kinds.

The fund is exciting because it's all about classroom kaiako and teachers getting the chance to innovate to improve outcomes for all children.

We are delighted to announce that this year we will have the privilege to work alongside teachers and kaiako in nine projects across Aotearoa New Zealand.
