Education Innovation Projects

Get the support and funding you need to make an impact in education  

Getting a transformational project off the ground can be hard going. You need access to the right resources, people and funding and you need time to make it all happen. At EPIT we support you with all of these aspects to make a positive change for all Kiwi learners.

We're all about transformative partnerships in education. When you join our community you are part of a supportive environment that will set you up for success.

What our partners are saying

The Te Whiriwhiringa space allows us to bring networks and stakeholders together in a way that we have not done before. As a national organisation, a lot of our engagement work is online but our in-person engagement, which is always more meaningful, has extensively increased since we moved in.
