This professional teaching qualification prepares students for Early Years and Primary teaching.
The three-year, full-time programme equips its graduates with teaching skills that will make a difference to all children, enhancing participation, achievement and the quality of the education they receive. It incorporates tikanga Māori, te reo Māori and Māori philosophy.
A major in Early Years prepares graduates to teach in mainstream and Māori-medium schools, early childcare centres and primary schools. A major in Primary extends that field to include middle schools and covers children aged five to 12 years.
