Overview

The Ministry of Education (the Buyer) is calling for potential Sponsors to register their interest in establishing a Partnership School|Kura Hourua (Partnership School or PSKH) to open in 2019.

In this fifth application round, the focus will be on sourcing Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM Education) Partnership Schools|Kura Hourua. If suitable STEM-focussed applications are not received, then the focus will continue to be on applications with a focus on priority learners. Given the level of funding available and the fact that this is the first application round with a focus on STEM Partnership Schools, it is considered likely that a mix of STEM and Priority Learner schools will be selected to proceed to the full application stage.

The Ministry is therefore seeking applications in relation to two different types of Partnership School:

1. STEM schools will use innovative pedagogy, curricula or school structures to engage students in one or more of the following subjects: Science, Technology (including digital technologies), Engineering and Mathematics. STEM Schools will be required to demonstrate how they will deliver more science, technology, engineering and maths competent learners and encourage more students to choose STEM educational and career pathways.

2. Schools focused on raising achievement among priority learners, i.e. those who have been identified as historically not experiencing success in the New Zealand schooling system, including Maori, Pasifika, students with special education needs and students from low socio-economic backgrounds. It is expected that 75% of enrolments will be priority learners.

This is a two-stage application process. At this first stage, the Expression of Interest (EOI), we will shortlist Applicants based on information in the attached response form. The second application stage (Request for Application stage) will test all key elements of each application including (but not limited to) more in-depth information on the sponsor, the educational plan (e.g. curriculum, enrolment plans, intended premises, school operations), school leadership and teacher quality, implementation plans and financial viability, including confirming proposed sources of private sector and community support and funding. Those entering into this process need to be aware that there is a large amount of work involved in preparing a full, well-articulated partnership school application within a short time period.
