2013 Annual Evaluation Report for the Teach First NZ programme pilot delivered in partnership with the University of Auckland

Jenny Whatman, Marie Cameron, Liesje Stevens, and Lorraine Spiller

This evaluation aims to understand how well the Teach First programme has been implemented and to what extent it has achieved its objectives. It is the first phase of a four-year independent evaluation commissioned by the Ministry of Education.

Teach First NZ is a partnership with the University of Auckland to attract university graduates and professionals to secondary schools serving lower-decile communities. People with specialist undergraduate degrees in high-priority subject areas are selected to enter into an intensive eight-week residential training programme and are then placed in jobs in lower-decile secondary schools for two years with on-going support, mentoring and development before graduating as qualified teachers.
