CORE Education, in collaboration with Michael Fullan and Joanne Quinn, is extending an invitation to schools in New Zealand to join this highly successful project.

We work alongside educators to change the role of teachers to that of activators of learning who design learning experiences that build on learner strengths and needs, create new knowledge using real-life problem solving and help all students identify their talents, purpose and passion.

This project fits ideally with the aspirations of schools seeking to work together as a community of schools under the IES initiative.
