A TENZ Free Membership is a personal membership of TENZ that will allow you access to information pages on TENZ's website and to your TENZ membership details.
For full access to all TENZ's information, member-priced resources, conference registration at member rates, and other member benefits, you will need to join as a Full Member.
Check out the available types of Full Membership to see which would suit you best.
TENZ Institution Membership is intended for schools or other educational institutions.
With a TENZ Institution Membership, your institution can join TENZ and have as many staff as you wish registered as members within your Institution Membership i.e. all staff involved in technology education can be registered as members.
School Membership fees are determined on the type and size (roll) of your school with larger schools charged more than smaller schools. The fee for your school will be shown when you identify your institution when completing your application.
Information about your school/organisation is drawn from the Ministry of Education's New Zealand schools database.
Early Childhood Institution
An Early Childhood Institution Membership Fee is $60 a year.
A Tertiary Institution Membership Fee is $150 a year.
An Individual Membership is a personal membership of TENZ. This type of membership is for you if you have an interest in technology education but do not work in a New Zealand education institution e.g. you work in an associated industry or service.
Individual Membership Fee
An Individual Membership is $95 a year.
Even if you do work in a New Zealand school or tertiary institution, you can choose to have an Individual Membership. Having a personal membership means that, regardless of where you work, your TENZ membership goes with you. This is useful if/when you change schools/institutions or change jobs and still want to be part of the technology education community and network.
Student Teacher Membership is to help beginning teachers join the technology education community and network, and is available to students during their teacher training.
Student Teacher Membership Fee
As a Student Member, you will not be charged a subscription during your training but, on beginning work as a teacher, are required to join as either an Individual Member, or within an Institution Membership.
