Course details

Summary

Our Bachelor of Teaching (ECE) gives you the knowledge, skills and practical experience required to begin your career in ECE.

The 3-year Level 7 programme blends online learning with practical experience in an early childhood setting to prepare you to become a qualified, registered early childhood teacher.

If you would like to study for the Bachelor of Teaching (ECE) over more than 3 years, you can request to study part-time if you complete the programme within an agreed timeframe.

Programme delivery

You will study 1230-credit courses over 3 years. There are two semesters a year, and both are 16 weeks long.

Weekly requirements include:
• approximately 16 hours of online engagement
• 12 hours of practice in a licensed early childhood centre (supervised by a registered teacher)
• an average of 9 hours of independent study.

In addition to supervised practice in your home early childhood service, you will need to complete a teaching practicum in a different setting during each year of the programme.

There will also be one 2-day noho marae experience each year.

Online blended learning:

Our blended learning approach combines online learning with face-to-face block courses or noho marae. It is flexible and means that you can study from anywhere in New Zealand.

You will study online using the latest pedagogical approaches and techniques. You will engage in learning online with lecturers and other students as well as at the face-to-face block courses or noho marae in one of our 11 regional bases.

Our lecturers will support, guide and empower you throughout your programme. Other students will also play a supportive role in your success.

Field-based learning

Many of our programmes have field-based study requirements, which means that you need to be working or volunteering in an education setting for a set period of time. This requirement enables you to study and work at the same time and immediately put what you learn into practice in an education setting.
