Overview

Bachelor of Education (Teaching) - Primary

Enter a profession where the demand for graduates is high in New Zealand and overseas. Gain an internationally-recognised degree from the only New Zealand University to rank in the top 50 in the world for Education as a subject.

Choose to specialise in teaching Primary, Early Childhood Education or Huarahi Māori. The university programme will equip you with the tools you need to teach in 21st century classrooms and education centres, where building strong relationships is vital, diversity is welcomed and digital learning is key.

You will be taught by academics who are experts in their fields of Education and passionate about supporting the next generation of teachers. Courses are taught through a range of methods including face-to-face lectures, tutorials and workshops, as well as online learning.

Over the three years, you’ll spend full-time practical placements (practicums) in a range of schools, kura or early childhood centres. You'll have the guidance of a dedicated teacher within the school or centre, as well as support by your university supervisors. 

This will help you to become a part of a community, establish connections to set you up in your career, and gain vital skills to prepare you for the transition into teaching.

What can you study in Primary Teaching?

Complete a Bachelor of Education (Teaching) specialising in either Primary or Huarahi Māori to teach at primary and intermediate schools (typically students aged 5–13) in Aotearoa New Zealand. Upon graduation, you will be eligible to apply for provisional teacher certification.

The programme is structured around core compulsory courses that develop your understanding of the New Zealand curriculum and your knowledge and skills as an effective teacher. You will become confident in using te reo Maori authentically in the classroom and develop skills to teach diverse learners.
