When a school pays for this membership, any teacher at that school becomes a member of the secondary educators section of the new NZIC Chemistry Education Branch. This secondary section will be the new association of chemistry teachers, which will be known as the “Secondary Chemistry Educators of NZ”, SCENZ.
Upon joining the NZIC as a school member, the school will receive the following benefits:
- Access to all previous and current year NZIC chemistry NCEA exams at no additional charge. These exams are for the school to use to help prepare their students. These exams are written and checked by past and present NCEA educators. Currently these exams are sold to ~ 250 schools throughout New Zealand.
- Access to resources developed by the Branch to support chemistry teaching and learning in NZ schools
- Access to professional development opportunities that support chemistry teaching in NZ schools
- Receive one electronic copy of the quarterly Chemistry in New Zealand journal.
- Teachers from member schools are eligible to join the NZIC education branch (see above for benefits)
