Membership and services

The services ISNZ provides to its members include:


Professional development

In the COVID-19 environment, we are in discussion with numerous providers to offer you professional development that is current, relevant and delivered in a way that complies with all restrictions as directed by Government.

ISNZ is committed to carrying on with its professional development programme and providing Member Schools with valuable learning and networking opportunities. We will communicate with you as soon as possible about how and when our events are going to proceed.
