A comparison is made between two schemes in England and New Zealand-the technology colleges programme and the Science and Technology Teacher Fellowship scheme-designed to promote science and technology education in the two countries. Both schemes are placed within the context of recent developments in science and technology education in England and New Zealand and are evaluated as responses to the challenges posed for science and technology education by the forces of globalisation and the growing importance of the ‘knowledge economy’.
