Teacher Education

Graduate Diploma

Teachers are among the most influential members of the community helping to lay the foundations for success in education and in life for the students they teach.

The Faculty of Education offers pathways for both undergraduate and graduate students into teaching. Enrolments open on 1st October 2014 to commence study in 2015.

Undergraduate Teacher Education

Students can choose a degree that incorporates teaching practice with undergraduate study.

The options are:

Graduate Teacher Education

The Faculty offers one year teacher education programmes for those who have completed an undergraduate degree and wish to train as a teacher. You can choose to study towards either a Graduate Diploma of Teaching or a Master of Teaching and Learning. If you are unsure which programme to apply for you can apply for both or choose one and indicate at the assessment exercise that you are interested in both programmes.

Graduate Diploma of Teaching

The Graduate Diploma of Teaching is available in Early Childhood, Primary, Secondary and Adult Literacy and Numeracy and can be completed either on campus or online.

Master of Teaching and Learning

From 2015 the Faculty will be offering a one year internship based Master of Teaching and Learning. Students will study either Primary or Secondary teaching while based in a school in the Wellington region. The qualification will not be available online as all students will need to attend classes on campus one day per week. The programme is currently subject to final approval.
