Thinking of becoming a teacher? You can study by distance in 2022 and gain an internationally-recognised qualification without leaving the province.
Waiho i te toipoto, kaua i te toira. Let us keep close together, not far apart.
The Rotorua Principals’ Association and Te Kura Whakangungu Kaiako | School of Teacher Education deliver an Initial Teacher Education (ITE) hapori (community of learning) for distance education students in Rotorua and the Waiariki Region (including Whakatane, Tauranga, Taupo and Tokoroa).
This exciting partnership enhances the delivery of UC's highly-recognised Bachelor of Teaching and Learning (Primary) programme and fosters close connections in the community. Much of your learning is by distance. Additionally, once a term a dedicated kaihautū (leader) – a UC lecturer – provides face-to-face workshops at Mokoia Intermediate School in Rotorua, to mentor and support you. Together in the ITE hapori, we'll help you to learn strategies and skills to become an effective and dynamic UC teacher graduate.

The academic turned perfumer will discuss how he used his background in science and engineering to bring the art of perfume design.
Few areas combine art and science as well as perfumery, according to the University of Canterbury's Head of School of Product Design, Professor Conan Fee, who is giving a free public talk on making scents laster this month.
In his upcoming talk which will also be livestreamed, Professor Fee, who is perfumer and director of Christchurch's only artisanal perfumery, will describe how almost anyone can quickly grasp the various catergories of aromachemicals - something that would normally take years to learn by classical training. The academic turned perfumer will discuss how he used his background in science and engineering to bring the art of perfume design to the people of Christchurch.
