There will not be a new intake into the New Plymouth Centre for 2020.

The New Plymouth Centre is located within the Western Institute of Technology (WITT) campus and offers the Bachelor of Teaching and Learning (Early Childhood).

How you will learn

One half-day class is held each fortnight, with students engaging in distance learning options at other times.

Required attendance

At the beginning of each semester students attend an orientation that introduces them to their subjects and to UC systems.

Students are also required to attend Professional Practice in a range of early childhood centres. These are arranged by UC staff. There are two Professional Practices each year of the degree.

It is suggested that students affiliate themselves with a licensed early childhood centre, of their own choosing, in order to become familiar with the processes and procedures within an early childhood setting.

Professional practice  
Year one Semester one: 2 weeks  Semester two: 4 weeks 
Year two Semester one: Community Engagement  Semester two: 5 weeks 
Year three Semester one: 5 weeks  Semester two: 5 weeks 

Available services

New Plymouth students are eligible for a range of services on the WITT campus including the library, student learning support, counselling services, and health services. They can also access UC's library services, learning support and counselling services.
