New Zealand Board of Geography Teachers (NZBoGT) - Your Geography Teachers' Association

 

The Board of Geography Teachers is a subcommittee of the New Zealand Geographical Society (NZGS). Our vision is to:

  • support the quality teaching and learning of Geography in New Zealand secondary schools.
  • raise the profile of Geography for students through participation in NZBoGT Competitions and events.
  • Promote links between the secondary and tertiary sectors and wider workforce within the geography community

 

We advise and consult with the Ministry of Education and New Zealand Qualifications Authority of matters of interest to New Zealand geography teachers and students.

 

The Board supports activities and professional development programmes for teachers and students at the local level through either Subject Associations or NZGS branches. For a list of local contacts see the Contact Us page
