English medium eFellowship


Do you share CORE Education’s vision for an equitable and thriving Aotearoa New Zealand? The Dr Vince Ham eFellowship is about our research team walking alongside you in your journey to inquire deeply into an identified puzzle of your practice.

This year, we are particularly interested in hearing from educators who are drawn to exploring culturally sustaining practices, for example localised curriculum. When applying, you may find it useful to consider this overview from CORE’s 2019 Ten Trends discussion about cultural narratives and localised curriculum, or to research available on the Education Counts.

The Dr Vince Ham eFellowship is a year-long supported action research project. Not only will you bond with like-minded colleagues, you will have access to our team of experienced facilitators, researchers, writers and evaluators as part of CORE’s commitment to you and your research. You will be supported to share your stories to inspire others.

The eFellowship is open to any educator or kaiako from early years through to senior secondary.

  • Ongoing mentoring (virtual and kanohi-ki-te-kanohi) throughout the year
