Course content

Get the skills and knowledge you need to create positive, inclusive learning environments and become a confident and effective educator.

This one-year, full-time programme will give you a grounding in the principles and theories of teaching and learning, human development, the primary school curriculum and teaching experience.

Throughout the year you'll study both educational theory and practice while gaining real classroom experience at a school in the Wellington region.

Pathway to the programme

You'll need a Bachelor’s degree in a relevant learning area with an average of at least a B in your final year of study, and to be accepted by the Faculty of Education as suitable for the teaching profession.

You may be given preference if you have studied courses in science, te reo Māori or mathematics. If you are planning to apply for this programme in the future, you should embrace opportunities to study a range of curriculum areas, including te reo Māori, science, mathematics and a social science. You'll also need a strength in at least one area of the arts and/or sports coaching.

Your selection will be based on your academic qualifications and achievement, skills and experience, referee reports, a satisfactory police check and your performance in an interview.

Study and workload

Throughout the year, you'll be working in schools for around four half-days a week—studying and developing your teaching practice. You'll be placed in a range of schools to experience different learning environments. You'll also have one day of timetabled classes on campus each week during which you'll discuss, critique and extend your learning.

In the second trimester, instead of the half-day placements, you'll spend seven weeks full time in one school, to widen and deepen your teaching experience.

After you graduate

You'll be ready for a rewarding career as a primary school teacher. The MTchLrn will allow you to apply for provisional teacher registration from the Education Council, and to apply for a teaching positions in schools throughout New Zealand.
