The New Zealand Graphics & Technology Teachers Association
Why Join NZGTTA?
NZGATTA is a progressive and forward thinking subject association with some very talented, creative and innovative thinkers in our ranks. We have been serving Technology and Graphics (DVC) teachers for over 39 years and have multiple regional associations peppered around the country that allow us to do this job.
Primarily we have been there to support, represent and inform the sector, but with all the changes, initiatives and developments in the education sector happening at the moment, it has never been more important to be part of a subject association especially with the roll out and funding of Networks of Expertise where Subject associations are now evolving to be PLD providers as well (Teachers helping teachers). It is in this area where we have been applauded for the work we have done and are doing with the support and dedication of the executive, regional representatives and subject specialists who give so willingly of their time to support others.
NZGTTA has supported and represented the sector in the following ways:
Come join the association along with encouraging your peers and take advantage of all we can offer but also give back because everyone has something they can offer.
We have something for everyone whether you teach with a wood bias, metal bias, textiles bias, multi materials, product or spatial design, DVC, Achievement Standards or Industry based Unit standards.
We are also very big on developing leadership capacity in our ranks for both subject specialists/experts as well as project managers and with the higher ranking opportunities come support and professional development.
