Full time study (17 weeks, one intake)
Full time study is completing all 60 credits in one intake. However, due to the nature of the
assessments in the programme it is assumed that students will be working at least part time and therefore full time study is not recommended. Full time acceptance into the programme will be guided by the Programme Coordinator.
As a guideline, one credit equates to approximately 10 hours of study within an intake period. For example, 30 credits requires approximately 18 hours of study per week, 60 credits requires approximately 35 hours of study per week. The hours specified may be higher during periods of assessment.
All papers selected within a particular intake must be completed within that intake.
All courses require you to have a computer and internet access.
All course materials and information, including assessments and due dates, are located online through the eWānanga Learning Management System.
Students are required to use their Te Whare Wānanga o Awanuiārangi webmail only for all
Once you have been accepted into a programme you will receive an Important Information booklet that includes information that you can use to familiarise yourself with our online
eWānanga learning environment. From the intake start date you will have access to the online course materials to work through.
Kaitiaki or Facilitator Assistance
During the enrolled intake period, students have email access to kaitiaki or facilitators, who
endeavour to respond to emails within 48 hours (week days only). All students are required, within the first two weeks of an intake, to send an email to their kaitiaki or facilitator confirming their start on the programme of study. Students who have NOT emailed their kaitiaki or
embarked upon their course of study by the end of the 2nd week of an intake, will be
withdrawn from the programme.
At the successful completion of this programme, graduates will have demonstrated competence in the design, delivery, assessment, evaluation and moderation of adult education and training courses suitable for training environments such as wānanga, private training establishments, polytechnics, workplace training or distance learning.
