Champions is a professional and collaborative initiative for educators to grow their knowledge, understanding and awareness of Asia. We support Champions to confidently lead initiatives in their school, community and wider professional affiliations.
The programme provides educators with an opportunity to help advocate for and shape an environment in Aotearoa New Zealand where all young people have an opportunity to grow their knowledge and understanding of Asia during their schooling.
Foundation Champions join a network with access to bespoke professional development opportunities such as workshops, conferences, cultural experiences, speaker engagements and targeted funding to grow New Zealanders knowledge and awareness of Asia.
The March application round has been postponed due to the Omicron outbreak. Keep an eye on this page for further updates.
