Pathways to teaching for UC Grads

Recent media coverage has highlighted New Zealand’s critical need for more teachers. There is a particular shortage of teachers in maths, physics, chemistry, technology and te reo subject areas, but some areas of New Zealand are urgently seeking teachers in a variety of subject areas.

Did you know that UC is a world leading provider of teacher education? We are ranked in the top 100 in the world at UC for Education! We have a number of highly respected, accredited pathways to a career in teaching through our College of Education, Health and Human Development.

For degree graduates it only takes one more year of study to become a teacher- either with a one year Master’s degree or a graduate diploma. While you study you will gain plenty of practical experience working in schools or early childhood centres mentored by expert teachers who support your learning.

Your one-year graduate options are:

Graduate Diploma in Early Childhood Teaching

Graduate Diploma in Teaching and Learning (Primary)

Graduate Diploma in Teaching and Learning (Secondary)

Master of Teaching and Learning (specialising in either early childhood, primary or secondary teaching)

All of these programmes provide significant time spent in schools or EC centres, strong bi-cultural focus, curriculum understanding and teaching and leadership development.

Applications are now open. For more information, advice and the application form visit www.education.canterbury.ac.nz
