What have others done?

Jackie Brown from Mount Hutt College has been an Edtern. She wanted her students to be excited about maths and create pathways for them into the world of work. Her project had students working with local real estate agents and builders to design their Dream Home. They visited a section tp do a site measure ( area and perimeter) and then designed and costed a house with a deck and pool and one interior room with all its furniture.

More about Edternship Programmes for teachers

The Edternship  programme is part of 21C skills lab  which connects teachers with leading business people or other professionals to spark new learning for and build creative relationships between teachers, their students and business

The Edternship programme has three stages

  1. The five day experience in the business
  2. A six – eight week design and testing period back at school; and
  3.  Sharing learning at school and beyond, completed by Wrap-Up Day in either June or November.


In your  application you tell them who you want to design a learning experience for and why, and any particular industries or skills you are keen to explore.

You create a pitch statement or video, and provide indications of support from your students and school leader.
