Shortlisted applicants will be notified by Tuesday 2 February 2021. Virtual interviews with shortlisted applicants will take place between 3 - 5 February 2021. Applicants will be informed of the final outcome on Tuesday 9 February 2021.


There is no preference from the selection committee for any particular media format, reflecting our commitment to enable applicants to demonstrate their knowledge and learning using media they are comfortable with.

To ensure fairness, the word count and overall media time limits are strict. Applications exceeding these may be excluded from selection without notification to the applicant beforehand. You may, however, wish to mix and match text with other media formats (where indicated). This is accepted as long as you do not exceed the limits.

Limit: No more than five minutes of total media time OR no more than 500 words of text.

For example:
✓ Acceptable - 200 words of text and 3 minutes of media content is fine (five minutes)
Х Not acceptable - 300 words of text and 3 minutes of media content exceeds the limits (six minutes)

Applicants are welcome from all sectors and are invited to complete their application in either English or Te Reo Māori.

As part of your obligations to the 2021 eFellowship you are required to participate in the following hui with all other eFellows:

  1. 25-26 February 2021 - whakawhanaungatanga hui in Pōneke (2 days)
  2. 11 June - online hui (1 day)
  3. October - final hui in Christchurch (afternoon of Monday 4 October and all day Tuesday 5 October)

Note: uLearn - 6-7 October is optional if you would like to present or attend uLearn21.

Before the end of Term 1, a CORE mentor will visit you at your learning community (1 day).

Māori medium only - you will attend a hui with CORE Education’s Te Arareo Māori team (date and time commitment to be confirmed).
English medium only - you will attend a two day hui that focuses on culturally sustaining practices  (date to be determined). 

Mentoring will be provided throughout the programme. These sessions will be virtual and arranged to suit you. There will also be up to three webinars (dates to be confirmed). The webinars will be recorded so if you can’t attend you can watch these later. 

Travel, accommodation, meals and teacher release (TRD or equivalent funding) is covered in this grant. CORE will make your travel arrangements as required. It is your responsibility to make sure your employer is notified of your need to attend hui and to undertake an action research project in your learning community (which is why we ask you to seek approval from your employer for you to participate in this eFellowship).
